13th LCDS meeting: Data-Driven Drug Discovery

10 June 2016
Snellius Building
Niels Bohrweg 1
2333 CA Leiden

Large amounts of pharmaceutical data have become publically available over the last few years. The Data-Driven Drug Discovery Network (D4N) aims to make proper use of these data sets, by applying and developing novel techniques from the field of data science. The network, which is embedded in the Leiden Centre of Data Science, combines expertise in computer science, statistics and medicinal chemistry.

During this meeting, the Data-Driven Drug Discovery Network will be introduced.
