An introduction to Cresset Discovery Services: Streamlining molecular discovery
Date and duration
We are hosting this webinar over alternative sessions:
- May 18th • 9am BST
- May 19th • 5pm BST, 12pm EDT, 9am PDT
Duration: 45 minutes
Computational methods offer an effective way to find, design and optimize new molecules. By predicting the physicochemical properties and biological activities of compounds prior to synthesis, you avoid unnecessary wet chemistry and save time and money. Cresset Discovery Services has been supporting scientists in the pharmaceutical, agrochemical and flavor and fragrances industries for almost 20 years by navigating bottlenecks and bringing fresh ideas to projects.
In this webinar, we’ll explore how complementing your internal research by outsourcing all or part of your computational chemistry can be particularly successful in accelerating the commercialization of research assets. The discussion will also explore the different ways our CADD scientists work with discovery teams to deliver their corporate objectives, including strategic contributions, written proposals, flexible service packages and monitoring and reporting on project progress.
About the presenter
Dr Martin Slater studied medicinal chemistry at the Universities of Leeds and Huddersfield. In 1997 he joined the then start-up company BioFocus where, as Senior Research Fellow, he underpinned the SoftFocus library brand with the development of innovative chemogenomic tools and the design of over 40 commercially successful protein targeted libraries. Martin pioneered the use of Cresset’s field based technologies for targets including GPCRs, Kinases, Ion channels and Proteases for library generation and de-novo ligand design.
Martin joined Cresset in 2011 as Director of Consulting Services, delivering high quality computational chemistry and molecular modelling services to pharma, biotech, agrochemical, academia, flavors and fragrances industries amongst others.
