Atomwise AIMS awards
I suspect many will have noticed the recent announcement of the Early Results in Drug Discovery Partnership with AI Biotech Company. These are the first results of the Atomwise AIMS awards:
The researchers have been using Atomwise’s AI-powered in silico screening technology to develop therapeutic treatments for, among others, certain types of strokes, hand-foot-and-mouth disease, and an infection that causes reproductive failure in pigs.
The AIMS award program is a great opportunity for university research scientists to easily access AI-assisted structure-based virtual screening technology:
- Customized small molecule virtual screen using AtomNet™ technology
- 72 small molecules predicted to bind to a specific target protein – QC verified by mass spectrophotometry, resuspended and diluted to a convenient concentration, aliquoted into microtiter plates, and delivered at no cost to the researcher
- Support from Atomwise’s medicinal chemists and structural biologists
- Opportunity to receive up to $30K USD to subsidize assay work
If you have a target protein with an X-ray crystal, Cryo-EM, or NMR structure, or with close sequence homology to a protein with available structures, and an assay in place to evaluate 72 potential hits, then you should consider applying.
Full details are on the AIMs awards page and the closing date is 29 April 2019.
