Drug discovery is a time-consuming and costly process (and all the more costly because it’s time-consuming). One of the hopes of the era of Big Data has been that having access to a wealth of scientific information could help speed the discovery process. However, the data itself has proven to come with many challenges. Medicinal chemists like myself are often frustrated in our attempts to integrate and work with disparate and unstructured sets of data.

FAIRification – don’t overthink it, just do it and tell others how

Posted on March 4th, 2020 by in Pharma R&D

Ideas change the world, but rarely without a lot of missteps, rethinking and redoing. The FAIR Data Principles are no exception: mostly, they emerged from ideas that were developed over the course of years before being consolidated and named in 2016, and now we’re in the thick of trying, learning, maturing.

“Complex” is the term that best describes the conditions that affect us. Whether it’s a disease or a consequence of a natural process such as aging, there are no simple fixes. (more…)
