Cambridge, UK – 18th September 2013 – Cresset, innovative provider of chemistry software and services, is holding a one day introduction to using computational tools for imaginative molecule design at Centre de Serveis Científics i Acadèmics de Catalunya (CESCA), Barcelona, Spain on 31st October.

“Delegates will explore how to rapidly generate new scaffolds and decipher complex SAR using the Spark and Forge software suites. Each session will be hands on so everyone will have the opportunity to work with our software personally,” says Dr Tim Cheeseright, Cresset’s Director of Products.

Dr Cheeseright adds, “We are delighted that María José Ojeda Montes, Universitat Rovira i Virgili will present on ‘Conformational Sampling Tools’ and Dr Mark Mackey, Cresset’s CSO will give insight on ‘Beyond simple similarity: Understanding the Route Cause of Activity’.”

Registration is free and now open at http://www.cresset-group.com/news-events/events/cesca/.

About Cresset

Cresset develops software for calculating and comparing the molecular field characteristics of chemical compounds. Cresset also offers consultancy services which enable companies to outsource computational chemistry work to achieve high value, on-demand expertise, particularly in the areas of library design, virtual screening, scaffold hopping, lead optimization and patent analysis.

Cresset’s field technology uses the surface properties of molecules to evaluate their activities and properties, rather than relying on 2D structure similarity, which enables Cresset’s users to find more interesting, novel and relevant results than other methods. This field technology provides a smarter, structure independent way of hit-finding, lead switching and lead optimization in drug discovery and other chemistry-based research projects. Cresset’s field technologies have been successfully applied to a very wide range of target classes, with and without structural information, on over 100 projects for major pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. www.cresset-group.com
