A Berlin Seminar Series @ DigiDrug.NET

Welcome!

Drug discovery is a complex, time and cost intensive process, and most drugs fail in the clinic. On the other hand, we have more and more chemical and biological data available, and tremendously powerful computer algorithms at our disposal. So how do we make best use of it?

With this seminar series, we aim to foster the networking between the academia, industry, and researchers at other organisations in the area of 'Digital Science for Drug Discovery', with a geographical focus on the Berlin region (and free and open to everyone). For the time being our events will be held via Zoom, with the aim to move to in-person events as soon as the situation allows.

Join us for our upcoming seminar (via Zoom):  9 September 2021, 4-5.30pm CET
