ADME profoundly affects a drug’s properties and has long been a cornerstone of pharmacology and drug discovery. Recent years, however, have seen an evolution in ADME concepts. Here, we take a closer look at the impact personalized and computational approaches are having on a drug's pharmacology.READ MORE
Dr Jane Cooke Wright – whether you’ve heard of her or not, her research changed the path of oncology, paving the way for cancer treatment as we know it.READ MORE
In recent years, informatics vendors have begun to offer Electronic Lab Notebooks (ELNs) as an outsourced service in the cloud. Regardless of size, location, and purpose, it is crucial that the data is collated and stored in a manner that keeps it secure, but also allows it to be used efficiently. Can cloud-assisted ELNs rise to the challenge?READ MORE
The coronavirus outbreak looks set-in for the long haul, with new strong holds and cases cropping in a constant stream. A question mark has also been raised over the possibility of re-infection. Officials and health authorities are doing their best to try and limit the spread but it requires the cooperation of the public.READ MORE
The integration of data into pharma and healthcare has created the opportunity to delve deep into the real world and generate meaningful insights, optimize patient recruitment, develop a better understanding of various therapeutics, and directly improve patient outcomes.
In this article, we explore why academia and research can be hard on an individual's mental health, speaking directly with the individuals and organizations that are championing mental health discussions in this space, and highlight areas where we're perhaps falling short and could improve.READ MORE
A new system named “Hopcroft” has brought advanced new data generation and processing capabilities to researchers and artists at Northern Illinois University. In this article, we discover how high-performance computing (HPC) has helped power-up "Hopcroft".
Three dimensional (3D) bioprinting and artificial intelligence (AI) have been fundamental technologies for understanding disease and contributing to groundbreaking research. Within the past year, technological developments have provided opportunities for early diagnosis and targeted treatment for mesothelioma patients.READ MORE
Throughout human history, we have always been at war with infectious agents. In the past, there used to be less sophisticated tools to identify epidemics. Nowadays, more advanced technologies, such as genomic sequencing, are being harnessed to gain information about infectious agents.READ MORE
Academic publishing has proved stubbornly resistant to change, but preprint servers have started to make their mark. Technology Networks spoke to BiorXiv content lead Samantha Hindle to find out more about how preprints could shake up publishing and give scientists a new avenue through which to share their research.READ MORE
