Software and consulting solutions for academics

Software for students

PhD students are eligible for special licenses for Cresset software. In addition, any student enrolled in a defined degree course where the output is intended for wholly academic purposes is entitled to user licenses for Spark™ and Flare™ for Academics.

Software for teaching

3D modeling software can accelerate students’ understanding and bring the subject to life for them. Concepts such as the impact of shape and electrostatics on ligand-protein binding are easier to explain and communicate using 3D visualization software, especially when the students can use it themselves. Our flexible licensing options put 3D visualization software such as Flare Viewer within the reach of most academic communities worldwide.

Software for research

Flexible licensing terms are available for software used for academic research, including for PhD studies. We actively encourage academic groups using Cresset software to publish their results and we're grateful to the academic community for their many software citations.

Collaborative working

Collaborative research

Cresset Discovery enhances the computational chemistry component of your research project. Our team of expert scientists has worked on a wide number of academic projects, many of which have been written up as case studies or in academic papers.

Working together from the early stages of a project means that we can help with research applications and funding proposals.

Academic code

We have a track record of collaborating with academics to build code into Cresset computational chemistry environments, providing convenience, connectivity, usability, validation and support. For example, WaterSwap is a widely used method for predicting the free energy of binding. It's implemented in SIRE, an open source molecular simulation environment developed by Dr Chris Woods at the University of Bristol. Cresset licensed WaterSwap from Dr Woods and it is now included in Flare, our structure-based design solution.
