Data-Driven Drug Discovery and Molecular Informatics

In our group we develop new life science data analysis methods (AI/ML/data science) and apply them in practice, primarily related to chemical biology, drug discovery and in silico toxicology

Group Fact Sheet (2019): http://drugdiscovery.net/data/2019_BenderGroup.pdf

Expertise comprises data ranging from chemical structure and gene expression data to phenotypic readouts and preclinical information, applied to both efficacy- and safety/tox-related questions

We collaborate with academic research groups, as well as  pharmaceutical, chemical, and consumer goods companies (Eli Lilly, AstraZeneca, GSK, BASF, Johnson&Johnson/Janssen, Unilever, ...)

Two companies have resulted from research in the lab, and it wouldn't have happened with signficiant work of other people - Healx Ltd. (led by Tim Guilliams) and Pharmenable Ltd. (led by Hannah Sore)
