With this form you can submit an expression of interest in the ICT support role for the Synergy pilots to be operated from April - October 2010. The pilots will create two virtual organisations (VOs) of research partners who will collaborate on a) a drug discovery project and b) a predictive toxicology project. The VOs will be created from partners from Douglas Connect Collaboration Pools, who will bring contributing knowledge, computational or experimental capabilities to the partnership for the duration of the projects:

a) Drug Design project will examine the application of a variety of leading modelling and design approaches to novel target kinases, to experimentally test predictions, and to initiate a best practices virtual screening resource.

b) Predictive Toxicology project will apply a combination of in silico and in vitro approaches to predict in vivo toxicity including exposure.
