Strategies for Merging and Analyzing Chemical and Biological Data for Effective Compound Prioritization Decisions
Keynote Speaker for this event:
  • Brian Masek, Ph.D., Product Manager and Lead Scientist, Tripos International  Learn More
  • Effective management of results from biological testing, chemical structure information and other disparate sources of discovery data is critical to decision-making in drug and molecular discovery projects, yet scientists often spend anywhere from minutes to hours each week dealing with mountains of data created from different programs, supplied in a variety of formats.  Viewing information obtained from multiple sources contained in independent reports, and manually merging these disparate data sources together to determine which are the most promising compounds for further studies or tox analysis poses a regular time drain as well as a challenge to effective decision making.  The ability to quickly and robustly determine which of many candidate compounds has the desired physicochemical properties and passes multiple design criteria is necessary to determine which compounds have the best chances of successfully navigating the drug discovery and development process.    


    Learn how to organize, analyze, and visualize chemical and biological data quickly and efficiently, enhancing efficiency and productivity.   During this webinar, you will:

    • See how disparate data sources - like chemical and biological data - can be quickly and easily merged using drag-and-drop capabilities
      Example: Merge assay results three biologists sent to you in Excel with chemical structure information
    • Learn about powerful ways to prioritize and select compounds based on multiple selection or scoring criteria
      Example: Analyze a set of lead structures against multiple criteria in your project’s biological cascade
    • Learn about ways to enhance communication between team members using simple sharing of results and experiments
      Example: Email a colleague a set of interesting protein-ligand structures and your comments on them

    Brian Masek, Ph.D., Product Manager and Lead Scientist, Tripos International 

    Brian Masek is a product manager and Lead Scientist at Tripos, where his research involves the development and validation of novel computer-assisted drug discovery methods with a current focus on molecular invention to generate drug candidates that optimize multiple drug design criteria and informatics tools for multicriteria drug prioritization.  Before joining Tripos, Brian was the Director for Scientific Research and Development at Optive Research, Inc. where he continued the scientific research and commercial software development that Prof. Robert S. Pearlman and the Laboratory for the Development of Computer Assisted Drug Discovery Software had conducted.  From 1986 until 2001, Brian held a variety of positions in the Research Department at AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals where his research focused on developing novel CADD methods and using these CADD methods to discover new drugs.  Brian received a BA in Chemistry from Kearney State College and a PhD in Physical Organic Chemistry from the California Institute of Technology.


    Tripos, a Certaraä Company, is a global leader in innovative scientific solutions enabling life science researchers to improve the efficiency of molecular discovery.  Established in 1979, Tripos was the first company to bring scientific computational drug discovery capabilities to the pharmaceutical, chemical and food design industries, and today helps a broad range of companies and research facilities accelerate the identification and optimization of new compounds that have the potential to become marketed drugs, foods, flavorings and fragrances.  Headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, Tripos serves more than 1,000 customers spanning over 46 countries.
