Establishing an Academic User Network for ChEMBL: Seminar/Workshop Tour 8-18th April 2013
Presentation by Dr Louisa Bellis (European Bioinformatics Institute), supported by SMSdrug.net
SMSdrug.net is supporting a UK wide tour of University Chemistry departments by Louisa Bellis(EBI-EMBL) to showcase the ChEMBL database.
ChEMBL is a database of over 1 million bioactive drug-like small molecules and contains 2-D structures, calculated properties (e.g. logP, Molecular Weight, Lipinski Parameters, etc.) and abstracted bioactivities (e.g. binding constants, pharmacology and ADMET data). It is an open-access, free resource that is currently used world-wide to aid in drug discovery.

Drug discovery: Leveraging academic impact through novel fragments
Tue 05 Feb 2013 – 3M Buckley Innovation Centre, Huddersfield
Given the UK strength in chemical synthesis, a chemical consortium focused upon the implementation of powerful synthetic methods would be perfectly placed to design and deliver novel three-dimensional chemical libraries for fragment screening to complement existing fragment libraries. The consortium would also be able to contribute to the generation of useful chemical start points for a broad range of target therapeutic classes.
In collaboration with the ‘Dial-a-Molecule’ EPSRC Grand Challenge Network and SMSDrug.net, on 5 February 2013 the 3D Fragment Consortium will host a workshop meeting at which the opportunities and benefits for academic synthetic chemists will be presented. In particular, the workshop will discuss:
- how class-leading academic synthesis can be used in a drug discovery context
- the key features of fragment libraries, and their relevance to cutting-edge research groups
- the tools available to enable synthetic chemists to make contributions to the drug discovery process
- constructing an inclusive network of med chem-facing academic chemists
- funding possibilities
- how to deal with IP issues
