We are pleased to announce the full agenda for April 14th, the public day of our Spring conference. If you'd like to attend, please register now! We've been working hard to put together an interesting day's content for the benefit of our members and friends alike, and we hope to encourage some lively debate and discussion that will support the creation of the next generation of Pistoia Alliance projects.
ChEMBL 20 incorporates the Hierarchical Editing Language for Macromolecules (HELM), the macromolecular representation standard recently released by the Pistoia Alliance.
Controlled Substance Compliance Services (CSCS), a project managed by the Pistoia Alliance, which helps companies check the legal requirements around using controlled substances in pharmaceutical research, is set to expand to China.
The Pistoia Alliance’s new members include large global companies, startups, and academic organizations, including Amgen, Lundbeck, Dotmatics Limited, quattroresearch GmbH, Patcore Inc., Hewlett-Packard Company, the University of Reading, Cambridgene, and QFAB.
Lowering Barriers to R&D Innovation
We are a global, not-for-profit alliance of life science companies, vendors, publishers, and academic groups that work together to lower barriers to innovation in R&D.
Our projects transform R&D innovation through pre-competitive collaboration. We bring together the key constituents to identify the root causes that lead to R&D inefficiencies. We develop best practices and technology pilots to overcome common obstacles.
Our members collaborate as equals on open projects that generate significant value for the worldwide life sciences community.
With the launch of our Interactive Project Portfolio Platform (IP3) we are embracing a new level of openness, access, and transparency around our idea-to-project process. The platform is open to the public to submit new ideas, comment and vote on proposed ideas, and monitor the progress of our projects.
We are delighted to announce the 5 finalists for the Pistoia Alliance President’s Startup Challenge 2016. They show innovative solutions that demonstrate how the harnessing and utilisation of scientific data will truly advance scientific research and development in this age of exponential data creation.
