The DNA of o2h is centred around the nurturing of its people, values and culture, it reflects in the way we work with each other, as well as our collaborators and partners. 

Our set of values are centred around the speed at which we learn, innovation, teamwork, attention to detail, energy, delivery, integrity, and community.

Values

value

The values that have historically permeated o2h in relation to discovery services are essential to the confidence and quality of the relationship o2h has with its clients. 

We value integrity in communication and action; social responsibility with respect to waste management and making a contribution to the community; and we possess an energetic can-do attitude. As a company we understand that in order to maintain the loyalty of clients we need to work closely as a team, show attention to detail and deliver. o2h continuously looks for improvements in every aspect of its activity and performance.

o2h understands that the best companies in the world invest genuine time and effort in the career development, performance management, feedback mechanisms and training of its teams. o2h has developed a career plan for all its scientists which ensures that the scientists are set new challenges at every stage of their career and are provided the necessary training in order to reach the next level of performance.

Team building

team-building

We have developed an active social program that has included bowling, restaurants, community work, cinema, restaurants and of course our o2h cricket team which ensures there is more to working in o2h than just chemistry/biology!

The team are constructively engaged in operational activity of the company and are encouraged to participate in discussions and decision making which impacts the issues that affect performance of the business.

Operational task list
All scientists in o2h are responsible for different areas of operational effectiveness. This ensures that o2h scientists take more pride, ownership and involvement in the running of ‘their’ lab (e.g. roles are assigned such as “Energy Saving Manager” in which the most recent electricity bill is sent to the whole team along with suggestions for saving energy). He or she is asked to report back to the operations task list coordinator on a weekly basis and the notes are distributed to the whole team.

Team meeting minutes
All o2h communications, issues, house-keeping, safety, training, equipment, team and lab related issues are discussed with the entire team from 9-9.45am every Wednesday morning. Minutes and actions are then circulated throughout o2h within 24 hours.

The quest to positively benefit the lives of patients in the world of drug discovery means finding novel therapeutics for unmet medical needs. The biotech and pharma companies have been increasingly resorting to external innovation to supplement their pipeline of ideas and turbocharge their research-based businesses with enterprising partners with complementary ideas, capabilities and services. It is therefore hardly surprising that the top medicinal chemists working in both large and small companies have multiple partners across different continents and time-zones. To deliver these iterative discovery projects often entails detailed co-ordination of inter-related activities and extensive multi-tasking. Project management is the hub that allows these complex matrices of networks to communicate and for the project to successfully advance. In today’s fast paced and technologically advanced digital world, providing the project manager the right tools to make informed decisions is key to successful delivery. o2h Discovery’s innovative app Chemistry in the Cloud TM builds upon the latest advances in secure cloud-based mobile technology and integrates project management of external drug discovery programs. The app enables communication between the various scientific stakeholders essential to successful project advancement leading to faster decision making. It negates the onerous tasks of weeding out critical information that is required to take a complex decision by extracting the information from large data intensive reports and databases. These crucial decision points are now just a ‘tap/swipe-of-the-finger’ in the Chemistry in the CloudTM app so that they can speedily execute tasks anytime, anywhere. The communication covering a gamut of research activities in relation to process of research now truly happens in 24/7 real-time. o2h announced a worldwide launch and first live demonstration of our revolutionary project management app – Chemistry in the Cloud TM on 10th September 2017 at the 19th RSC/SCI Cambridge medicinal chemistry conference to some of world’s top scientists. The app’s full suite of project management tools is available exclusively to live project collaborators and a lighter version is open for researchers looking for a quote for the synthesis of small molecules. https://www.linkedin.com/in/sunil-shah-4bb225/detail/recent-activity/shares/ Nilesh Dagia (nilesh@o2h.com) is the COO @ o2h Discovery
