Biotech Showcase: Comparing Informatics Platforms of 2 Biotech Organizations

March 14th, 2019  •  9:00AM (PDT), 12:00PM (EDT), 16:00 (GMT)

March 14th, 2019
9:00AM (PDT), 12:00PM (EDT), 17:00 (GMT)

Please join the Foghorn Therapeutics collaborative scientific team of David Lahr (Head of Informatics), Joe Marchionna (Research Informatics), and Johannes Voigt (Computational Chemist), together with An2h Discovery CSO Jennifer Johnston, as they reveal cutting-edge informatics workflows with CDD Vault.

They will share how distributed biotechnology researchers best use CDD’s new ELN module, as well as the traditional Activity & Registration, Visualization, and Inventory capabilities.

In addition to standard drug discovery use cases, you will learn about more sophisticated, custom scripts which interface with CDD Vault via the Application Programming Interface (API).    Witness the successful creation of a useful data-mart (as opposed to the more common “data swamp”), with the customized “Fog-Browser”.

CDD Vault plays well with an ecosystem of leading tools, including announced collaborations with the following technology organizations:

Biovia (Accelrys)





InChi Trust




Be sure to join us Thursday, March 14th, 2019 at 9AM PT, noon ET, 17:00 GMT for this sneak peek at the latest CDD Vault functionality (including the world’s fastest saving, most scalable ELN recently launched) from leading drug discovery researchers pushing efficiency boundaries.
