Bioinfogate has been invited to a speak at the Chem-Bio Informatics Society (CBI) Annual Meeting “”Towards Seamless Integration of Structural Biology and Information Science”~Dawn of the AI era in drug discovery~” which takes place in Tokyo, Oct. 22-24, 2019.

During the Focused Session FS13 “Computational toxicology – practical and application”, (Wed Oct. 23, 16:00-17:30), Dr Josep Prous, Jr., Executive Director at Bioinfogate will present “THE IMPORTANCE OF A SOLID KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT STRATEGY IN COMPUTATIONAL TOXICOLOGY”.

Given the continuous growth of safety and toxicity information, it is essential to design an adequate knowledge management plan to identify the most relevant safety hotspots to be analyzed in the context of a research project.

In his presentation, Dr Prous, Jr. will explain how the availability of a large amount of high quality, manually curated information has allowed scoring functions to be developed in order to identify safety hotspots which may be readily applicable in computational toxicology programs.

This approach has been integrated into the OFF-X translational safety intelligence portal which provides integrated preclinical toxicity and clinical adverse event intelligence for drugs and targets in all phases of drug R&D, including first-in-class and emerging targets.
