  • pIC50 Webinar On Demand Video from the pIC50 Scientific Webinar April 15, 2015 - CDD’s recent live webinar event about the merits of pIC50 was a great success. To summarize, Dr. Marc Navre endeavored to convince the audience to think logarithmically, and why the use of pIC50 values to share the results of in vitro assays with colleagues is easier, smarter and cleaner than using “old-fashioned” IC50 values. Live examples of using CDD Vault and CDD Vision to enable these calculations were also presented. If you missed it, or would like to share with your colleagues, you can download the slides or check out the complete presentation...
  • Webinar Video In Case You Missed It, Check Out The Video From CDD’s Recent Scientific Webinar October 29, 2014 - CDD’s recent live webinar event was a great success. To summarize, first, Dr. Chris Lipinski, reknowned medicinal chemist and CDD Scientific Advisory Board member, described the importance of considering enthalpy and entropy when optimizing for ligand affinity, and how this might differ between drug discovery techniques. Using the custom calculations available in CDD Visualization, we defined [...]
