Review of the 6th RSC/SCI Ion Channels as Therapeutic Targets Symposium
Introduction This bi-annual event was, as usual, of a high scientific standard with a great line-up of talks.
Cresset is proud to co-sponsor the 2014 Teach-Discover-Treat challenge.
The purpose of the Teach-Discover-Treat (TDT) initiative is to develop and disseminate computational workflows for drug discovery. As such, the competition puts a premium on reproducibility. Workflows submitted to TDT should utilize freely available software tools. In order to be evaluated, submissions should include a tutorial as well as all models, scripts, and other tools necessary to execute the workflow. There are four challenges:
Challenge 1 : Malaria High-throughput Screen
Challenge 2 : Discover new anti-Malaria compounds
Challenge 3 : CDPK1 Virtual Screening
Challenge 4 : Open Innovation
Competition winners will receive $500 plus $1000 help with travel to the ACS San Francisco, Fall 2014.
