Flare V7: What's new for ligand-based and structure-based drug designers?
Flare™ V7 has arrived! During this webinar we will guide you through an overview of the new structure-based functionality (such as GCNCMC in dynamics/FEP; ensemble covalent docking) and ligand-based functionality (such as QSAR workflow enhancements and new QM features) in Flare. We will also show you some of new features of the interface which help you maintain high productivity while using the platform to design new molecules. Please come and join us to hear about these exciting new features.
About the presenters
Stuart Firth-Clark obtained his PhD in Chemistry from the University of Bath where he investigated the use of computational methodologies to study chemical reactivity. He then spent 20 years working for small biotech contract research organizations where he was responsible for developing and implementing their computational chemistry services to prospective and existing customers. Stuart is now a Senior Application Scientist at Cresset. His responsibilities include training and supporting Cresset customers so that they can achieve their scientific goals using Cresset’s ligand-based and structure-based software solutions.
Nathan Kidley completed his PhD in Computational Chemistry at the University of Exeter, UK. He then joined Syngenta at Jealott’s Hill where, for 14 years, his work primarily focused on lead finding optimization projects for small molecule active ingredient research. Nathan’s experience spans writing chemical standardization rules to using molecular dynamics to drive conformational changes. As a Senior Application Scientist at Cresset Nathan’s responsibilities include training and supporting customers, enabling them to achieve their scientific goals through the use of Cresset’s ligand-based and structure-based software solutions.
