    AI and Drug Discovery - The Past, Present, and Future

    AI and Drug Discovery - The Past, Present, and Future

    AI-assisted drug discovery is all the rage these days. It seems as if new companies and partnerships are being announced every day. Is this a new phenomenon, or an evolution of what has been done in the past? What are the key challenges standing in the way of computer-assisted drug discovery?

    For the last episode of season 2 of the analytical wavelength we talk with two experts in drug discovery. Dr. Chris Lipinski is famous for introducing the "Lipinski Rule of 5s," the original prediction tool in drug discovery, which he developed at Pfizer. Dr. Olivier Elemento is a professor at Cornell University, where he studies AI-assisted drug discovery

    Smart Chromatography and Method Development

    Smart Chromatography and Method Development

    Chromatography is a powerful a flexible technique at all stages of chemistry research. Whether you are a graduate student attempting purify a compound or a pharmaceutical company attempting to test product quality, an effective chromatographic method is critical.

    But how do you develop these methods? Optimizing chromatography techniques is notoriously time consuming and frustrating work. Can predictive software increase the productivity of chromatographers?

    The Case for CASE - Computer-Assisted Structure Elucidation

    The Case for CASE - Computer-Assisted Structure Elucidation

    What is this chemical? This is a problem for scientists since the discovery of the elements. For the modern chemist, software tools can help solve this problem. Computer assisted structure elucidation (CASE) is one of the most powerful and versatile tools available when determining chemical structures.
    Join Charis and Jesse as they discuss the past, present, and future of CASE. How can CASE help your chemistry? Let’s find out.

    Chemical Predictions and Animal Testing - How Computers Saved the Bunnies

    Chemical Predictions and Animal Testing - How Computers Saved the Bunnies

    Product safety is critical in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Everyone needs to trust the medication they take, the food they eat, and the personal care products they use. Unfortunately, this has required the use of animal testing, which has been a controversial subject for decades.
     
     Thanks to scientific advancements, the age of animal testing may soon be in the past. Episode 2 of the Analytical Wavelength explores the role of chemical prediction technology in reducing the need for animal testing. We will talk to experts in the science of animal testing, and the use of QSAR in product safety.
