Virtual Screening Streamlines the Discovery Pipeline at AusBiotech 2017

04 October 2017

Cambridge, UK, 4 October 2017: Cresset, innovative provider of software and contract research services for small molecule discovery and design, and Cancer Therapeutics CRC (CTx), a collaborative partnership of leading research institutes, universities and biotechnology companies in Australia, will co-exhibit on stand 66 at AusBiotech 2017, Adelaide, Australia on 25-27 October.

Delegates attending AusBiotech 2017 will learn how the power of Cresset’s virtual screening platform, Blaze, combined with the experience of CTx, makes a powerful and effective platform for lead discovery. Specifically: finding novel hits that are not found using other methods; consistently returning hits with lower molecular weight than other approaches; and increasing wet screening hit rates at a fraction of the cost.

“We have been consistently impressed with the computational methods we’ve used from Cresset,” says Dr Graeme Stevenson, Group Leader, CTx. “Blaze has streamlined our discovery workflow, saving us time and money and helping us identify new lead compounds.”

“CTx plays a pivotal role in the discovery of cancer-related targets and therapeutic compounds,” says Dr David Bardsley, Commercial Director, Cresset. “We’re looking forward to sharing the successes of our partnership and explaining how we have worked together to streamline the discovery of novel hits. We will also be demonstrating Flare, our new structure-based design application, on stand 66 at AusBiotech 2017.”
