About our science

Cresset software is based on robust science that delivers results you can rely on.

Our goal is to help you discover, design and optimize the best possible molecules for your project. We believe that computational methods are an excellent way of arriving at a better understanding of the properties and behaviors of chemical structures and proteins.

Excellent science is at the heart of everything we do, and we always prioritize scientific rigor over ease of use and faster runtimes. Our technology makes extensive use of the XED force field developed by Dr Andy Vinter, the company’s founder and Chairman, to describe a more detailed electrostatic environment around atoms.

Our patented algorithms use this detailed view of electrostatics together with shape to describe the key ligand-protein interactions that underpin biological activity. We continue to work on this pioneering science, crafting ever improving computer models of molecular interactions.
