Cambridge Cheminformatics Meeting


A brief reminder about the next Cambridge Cheminformatics Network Meeting on Wednesday, 12 February 2020, at the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC,, starting at 3.30pm with coffee and talks from 4pm onwards - this time it will be a 'startup event', with the program being as follows:

"Quantum Software for Quantum Chemistry"
Joan Camps, Riverlane

"Improving virtual screening by combining molecular docking and hydrophobic profile similarity"
Javier Vazquez, Pharmacelera

"Imputation of heterogeneous assay data using deep learning"
Tom Whitehead, Intellegens

We will as usual retreat to the Alma afterwards (around 5.30pm) - no registration is necessary, and everyone is welcome to attend. (If you plan to attend please aim to turn up somewhat before the event starts, given that participants need to sign in upon arrival at the CCDC which may take a few minutes.)
