"LaGray Chemicals Company in Nsawan, Ghana, does not seem to be involved in research-based pharmaceuticals although it is stated on their website that they are involved in drug discovery">>>>
I wish to confirm to you that they are indeed a vertically integrated Pharma Company. I have a standing collaboration with on discovery projects and they have many such research activities going on.
In addition to this, LaGray is the first company in Ghana to undertake API synthesis and they do this routinely. Whenever you are in Ghana please pay them a visit. I read their webpage and went over to have a discussion and the collaboration start right away.
There is the need for more funding and that is will bring more progress.
