It will be a very quick trip to give a talk on Monday “Cheminformatics Workflows Using Mobile Apps for Drug Discovery” followed by a poster in the afternoon “Dual Response and Dataset Fusion for Machine …

Working at the peripheries of science

Its Friday, the first full week back at work for 2014 and I am already pondering, (well mulling really) why I still do what I do. And the constant media attention for youth and success just needles me, especially for those in science. Yes I said goodbye to 30 a longtime ago, 40 a few …

Predicting Targets for TB Phenotypic Screening Hits and Openess of data and models

So far the only readily accessible, free approach to predicting TB targets is TB Mobile developed for iOS and Android with Alex Clark. While relatively crude the app does allow look up and similarity searching of 745 compounds with known targets so it may help propose possible targets for a new compound. Obviously there are …

A new year and a New start – leaving the Pistoia Alliance Board of Directors

I hope I can say 2014 is a New Start. Due to my increase in time contributed to working on rare diseases through Jonah’s Just Begun, the Hereditary Neuropathy Foundation and Hannah’s Hope Fund my “free time” has taken a bit of a squeeze. In addition when combined with the 3 NIH grants I am …

Why I passed on attending #scio14

For the last 2 years I have been incredibly fortunate to attend and participate in what I think is the best conference ever, namely Science Online. Antony Williams introduced me to this conference and we had a great time discussing ideas each year I attended. The format and topics of discussion were excellent and they …

Summary of collaborative publications in 2013.

Time for a brief end of year summary and some insights into various papers, reviews and commentaries I was involved in this year. I have probably missed a few papers that are either not in PubMed or come to mind readily so will likely add as I remember them. What really struck me in a …

Rethinking how we present molecules in consumer products using mobile apps

It seems a long time ago that Alex Clark and I were brainstorming over beers following a local ACS meeting here in Raleigh on what cool mobile apps could be created..inspired by posters and how we display chemistry information (think tables of structures and data that is not easily extracted or shared). Recently one of …

American Chemical Society 2013 Meeting – New Orleans

I am just back from the 2013 American Chemical Society in New Orleans at which I co-chaired 2 sessions in CINF. Lots of gumbo and jambalya were consumed. A very busy meeting, so much so that I barely left the rooms in which I was either talking or helping to chair. Lots of interesting discussions …

NIH Data Sharing Plan – Why ODDT could be the solution*

*(Well maybe for Tuberculosis, Malaria, Huntington’s disease, HIV/AIDS, Chagas Disease, Leishmaniasis, Hunter syndrome, Giant Axonal Neuropathy, H5N1, Fibromusclar Dysplasia, Sanfilippo Syndrome etc) Helping collaborators with their NIH grants (R01, U19, SBIR, STTR, etc.), one is struck by something that has to be done early in most cases yet is usually left till last. That is …

Why are some companies slowly developing mobile apps ?

If you follow this blog, you will already know I have a bit of an interest in mobile apps for chemistry and science in general. This is through having ideas like Green Solvents, Open Drug Discovery Teams and TB Mobile  (which are all free apps) and then getting a great developer like Alex Clark involved that knows the …
