Truly collaborative drug discovery

I am very excited to be working alongside Collaborative Drug Discovery as a member of their Advocate programme for the CDD Vault informatics platform.

Collaboration is at the very heart of drug discovery and data is its currency. I don't believe you can over-state the value of high quality data management tools for enabling successful drug discovery: from the fundamental organisation of data to ensure its ready accessibility whenever it is needed to the meaningful visualisation of data to provide the clarity of information that leads to its better understanding and which in turn underpins effective decision making.

Everyone works within teams or for projects and these may be internal, cross-site or with external partner organisations such that the need for seamless data sharing is greater than it has ever been if projects are to be run effectively to a successful conclusion.

CDD Vault is a complete platform for drug discovery informatics hosted through an intuitive web interface.  It helps project teams manage, analyse, and present chemical structures and biological assay data.

There is literally nothing to install and the ease of set up means that you will be up and running immediately. It is very easy to learn with excellent online help which I can personally vouch for! Getting data into the Vault is simple thanks to its clear mapping interface and visualisation tools support its clear interpretation and subsequent export.

Thanks to its simplicity and flexibility, CDD Vault is suitable for any size of organisation where it can support all your informatics needs or indeed run alongside and complement existing informatics software. It is equally suitable for industrial and academic users, including not-for-profit organisations and CDD can be justifiably proud of its record in supporting charity organisations in their fight against rare diseases. Certainly, it is the perfect platform to support Open Innovation.

So, in summary CDD Vault features include:

  • Easy Onboarding
  • Powerful
  • Built for Teams
  • Built for Chemists and Biologists
  • 100% Secure
  • Affordable

I look forward to meeting and working with many of you as members of the growing CDD community over the coming months and years.
