On the topic of “Liberating Laboratory Data”, Dial-a-Molecule and AstraZeneca Macclesfield would like to announce the meetings: Facilitating automated capture and use of laboratory dataMonday 20th January 2014&Towards an open data description for Electronic Laboratory NotebooksTuesday 21st January 2014at AstraZeneca Macclesfield.“Dial-a-Molecule” is an EPSRC funded Grand Challenge Network with the aim:“In 20-40 years, scientists will be
In order to exploit the vast body of currently inaccessible chemical information held in Electronic Laboratory Notebooks (ELNs) it is necessary not only to make it available but also to develop protocols for discovery, access and ultimately automatic processing. The ability to draw on the body of accumulated chemical knowledge in order to predict or
X-ray absorption spectroscopy: New Insights at the Interface between Homogeneous, Heterogeneous and Hybrid Catalysis
19th-20th September 2013 at STFC RAL near DLS. Sponsored by Dial-a-Molecule and the UK Catalysis Hub, this two-day symposium will bring together UK and international researchers interested in the application of X-ray methods to accelerating synthetic research in the remit of the Dial-a-Molecule Grand Challenge goals. Day One will feature lectures from catalysis and synchrotron practitioners with a particular emphasis on the role of clusters and nanoparticles in synthesis. Day Two will provide an interactive forum for attendees of all backgrounds and levels of synchrotron experience (including complete newcomers!) to foster new collaborations, and formulate interdisciplinary research grant and beamtime proposals. Researchers from both industry and academia are most welcome to attend.
On 17th May the Dial-a-Molecule Executive Group submitted a statement to BIS in response to Prof. Sir John O’Reilly’s invite for comments on key priorities for the spending review FY 2015/2016. In this letter the following key recommendations were made: Continue support for science and research through protection of the research budget and related capital
The Final of the 2013 RSC Emerging Technologies Competition will take place on 5th June 2013 at the Chemistry Centre, Piccadilly, London. The finalists will pitch to a judging panel and the winners will be announced during the award ceremony.
4th April 2013 at Brunel University. Come and showcase your latest technology and help identify current technology gaps. Take part in the sandpit afternoon session - CMAC and Dial-a-Molecule are making available PROOF OF CONCEPT FUNDING to invite proposals addressing five NGRP CHALLENGES.
The Dial-a-Molecule EPSRC Grand Challenge Network is organising a debate on how synthetic biology may transform the way we make molecules in the future on 18th February 2013 at GSK, Stevenage.This follow-up to the first meeting (19th June 2012, GSK) is deliberately designed to provide a superb opportunity for networking as well as taking part
A Dial-a-Molecule EPSRC Grand Challenge theme event. When: 5 February 2013. Where: 3M Buckley Innovation Centre, University of Huddersfield. The last 10 years have seen a radical restructuring of global pharma R&D in response to the increasingly challenging process of discovering, progressing and launching a new drug. A consequence of this business remodeling has been the tapering of UK synthetic and medicinal chemistry capacity...
Diversity in natural product families is governed by more than enzyme promiscuity alone: establishing control of the pacidamycin portfolio
“Diversity in natural product families is governed by more than enzyme promiscuity alone: establishing control of the pacidamycin portfolio” by Rebecca Goos et al. was published in Chemical Science end of last year. The article describes the researchers’ success in directing the production of some specific antibiotics in bacteria. By manipulating the genes responsible for
Thinking of a new exciting Dial-a-Molecule event? Whether it is a meeting to brainstorm, discuss, write grant proposals, forge new collaborations or present developments - we can help realise these events! The Network Coordinator Susanne Coles would love to hear from you.
These will cover travel expenses and accommodation costs to allow ECRs to attend Dial-a-Molecule events. ECRs are defined as post-doctoral research fellows and academic staff in the first three years of their first academic appointment. Applications will be via meeting application forms.
Dial-a-Molecule can support your research! Proof of Concept funding is available for novel, early stage research critical for the development of the Grand Challenge not fundable in a timely manner from other sources, but will lead directly to grant applications. We will fund up to 3 months PDRA time (at 80% of FEC including indirect costs).
