Chemi-biology computational platform for lead discovery in infectious disease (2012–2014)
The proposed computational platform brings together complementary expertise in infectious disease
research and advanced computational methods to accelerate the drug discovery process. The use of the
Platform will increase the likelihood of discovering successful lead compounds for anti-infective medicine.
This Platform, unique in Australia, will consist of high-performance computational hardware and an
integrated suite of open source and commercial software linked to curated chemical and biological datasets.
The Platform will offer an environment for collaborative research, enabling the sharing of workflows and
analytical tools tailored for pre-competitive lead compound discovery in infectious diseases.
