Title: "Accelerating Access to More Physical Quantum Chemical Data for Ligand-Based Virtual Library Screening through Machine Learning"

Abstract: "The ChemAlive engine and API brings machine learning and quantum chemistry to the chemical and pharma industry, allowing the modeling of accurate quantum chemical metrics at scale for the design, prediction and understanding of chemical properties. By leveraging machine learning techniques we are able to deliver quantum mechanical accuracy at classical mechanics speeds including improved atomic charges and conformational structure. With quantum we can quickly assess tautomeric and diastereomeric space as well as solvation effects using a strict molecular energy regime rather than a rules-based regime. ChemAlive is looking for large-scale drug discovery partners to deploy its technology."

ChemAlive gives Plenary Lecture at Evotec (Toulouse)

Title: "Reaction Prediction (Screening) Coupled to Virtual Library Data through High Throughput Quantum and Machine Learning"

Abstract: "Reaction prediction has traditionally been based on encoding of chemical derived rules from experience, models and, more recently, literature data. Next generation approaches coming out of academic work have begun to use more physics-based and quantitative measures, such as atomic charges, but still rely on the known to predict the unknown. ChemAlive is working towards a fully quantum and physical data driven reaction prediction regime that unlocks the large unknown chemical space where high value intellectual property is likely to be found. To access qualitatively reliable quantum chemical data in drug discovery, quantum chemistry itself must scale. ChemAlive is developing a high throughput solution to address reaction prediction (screening) at the lead (cloud computations) and library (machine learning) scale."

Publication: Journal of American Chemical Society

DOI: 10.1021/jacs.7b07053

Gels produced with dynamic polymers are broken down to liquids after the addition of metal salts. NMR studies and DFT calculations reveal that the  energetic landscape render stable nonequilibrium products. These species remain stable in the liquid phase at room temperature but convert to gels upon heating.  Controlled gel times dictated by the thermodynamics and kinetics of the system were achieved harnessing self-healing properties and triggered release functionality.
