Cresset announces scientific programs for User Group Meetings 2016

North American User Group Meeting: 1st June 2016, Cambridge, MA, USA
European User Group Meeting: 16th – 17th June 2016, Cambridge, UK

Cambridge, UK – 3rd May 2016 – Cresset, innovative provider of software for small molecule discovery and design, is pleased to announce their North American and European User Group Meetings, both taking place in June 2016.

“Our established User Group Meetings offer computational, medicinal and synthetic chemists the opportunity to hear from our customers and understand more about how Cresset solutions can increase the effectiveness of their discovery programs, “ says Dr Tim Cheeseright, Director of Products at Cresset. “Delegates will also have the opportunity to attend workshops where they will learn how to extract even more value from Cresset software. In our industry, where confidentiality is so important, it is a mark of respect for each other that we manage to share the inspiration and ideas behind our common scientific goals in a constructive way. I look forward to welcoming existing and prospective customers to both meetings.”
