If you are local to San Francisco, or staying through the weekend, there’s another exciting opportunity to meet CDD and share experiences in Life Science Research with other drug discovery scientists. CDD is hosting a free seminar on Friday, April 7th, starting at 9:00 AM. During this seminar, you will hear your peers’ experiences in drug discovery. Sign up today and join us as we discover how our guests are successfully applying research informatics tools to manage chemical and biological data for their diverse and distributed teams.
