Optibrium launches online community for drug optimisation
Optibrium launches its online community, optibrium.com/community, providing a rich environment for users of its StarDrop drug discovery software to interact and gain even more value. The Optibrium community also provides a forum for the wider drug discovery community to discuss drug optimisation and share ideas aimed at improving productivity.
The Optibrium community site includes interactive forums covering topics such as drug design and optimisation, as well as the application of StarDrop to challenges in drug discovery projects.
Articles and presentations by the Optibrium team and the wider community are accessible to everyone and available for comment by community members. Additional predictive QSAR models and scripts that extend the functionality of StarDrop can also be downloaded. Furthermore, access to technical support and FAQs through the community site will bring the Optibrium team even closer to our user base and allow StarDrop users to learn from others' experience.
Ed Champness, CSO of Optibrium, commented "We are excited by this latest development which will bring together our hundreds of users worldwide and help them to get the most out of StarDrop. We also believe that this will be a stimulating environment for discussion of wider issues and solutions to the challenges of quickly and efficiently discovering new drug candidates."
The Optibrium community site was developed by One Pica of Boston, MA. "It's rare to find a forward-thinking software company that aims to not only meet their users' needs, but improve the community as a whole. We are thrilled to develop such a successful community platform and are eager to watch it grow." stated Gregory Segall, President of One Pica.
