Outsourcing Computational Chemistry for Drug Discovery

Computational chemistry is a highly-skilled scientific field that has delivered proven results for drug discovery, particularly in the areas of lead identification and optimisation. Many companies maintain an in-house team or expert who can perform data analysis and carry out molecular modelling. The trend to outsource is making computational chemistry methods affordable and accessible for smaller research organisations. Dr Martin Slater of Cresset outlines the scientific and business reasons for outsourcing this important drug discovery method.
