Cresset has announced that Nagoya University’s Institute of Transformative Bio-Molecules (ITbM), creator of cutting edge science, located in Nagoya, Japan, has licensed Cresset’s Forge, the powerful computational chemistry suite for understanding SAR and molecular design.

“The focal point of ITbM is to develop transformative bio-molecules that will be key to solving urgent problems at the interface of chemistry and biology,” says Associate Prof. Ayato Sato, Head of Research Promotion Division and the chief coordinator of ITbM Chemical Library Center, ITbM Nagoya University, Japan. “We are confident that licensing Cresset’s software will accelerate our research to find candidates of transformative bio-molecules.”

“Working with Cresset’s tools has helped me generate new ideas for my projects in various disease areas,” adds Dr. Anupriya Kumar, WPI Postdoc Fellow, ITbM Nagoya University. “The molecular visualization has made it easier to communicate my ideas to my experimental collaborators, both chemists and biologists.”

“We are delighted that Cresset software is assisting Japanese biomolecular research,” says Dr David Bardsley, Commercial Director at Cresset. “Forge uses the shape and electrostatic character of molecules to create qualitative and quantitative 3D models of activity. It is the ideal tool to assist ITbM in their research.”
