Computational Chemistry in the Life Sciences: An Industry-Academia Forum


BiOrbic SFI Bioeconomy Research Centre, Crystal3 MSCA Consortium and UCD School of Chemistry are delighted to present a forum on the advantages and applications of computational approaches in the life sciences. This event is delivered by leading industry experts from Cresset, an innovative provider of software and contract research solutions based in Cambridge, UK.

Computational methods have the power to provide faster and more innovative solutions than traditional experimental techniques. In this knowledge transfer event, learn how these cutting-edge approaches are applied in a commercial sphere to increase R&D efficiency, using proven, targeted case studies and ventures. Gain insight into specialist commercial outsourcing, and how this can deliver expert scientific knowledge, experience and sophisticated methods to accelerate your research in a cost effective manner.

This is a hybrid event, with the capacity for participants to attend remotely. Please find registration at the bottom of the page.
