Seminar: Lunchtime with Collaborative Drug Discovery

March 9, 2016

Join us for a lunchtime seminar at the University of California in San Diego (UCSD)
Wednesday, April 6, 2016
10:00 am – 2:00 pm PT

Register for and join our free seminar to learn how local researchers are applying research informatics to their chemical and biological experiments.

You will learn about chemical registration, data archival, data analysis, and database-enhanced collaborations. This is an opportunity, with CDD’s data experts in-person, to learn data management best practices, including how to create a robust data model that allows you to leverage all of the integrated components within your research project(s). We will use the intuitive, user-friendly CDD Vault drug research informatics platform.
