I’m very excited to announce that I’m joining the scientific advisory board for OpenEye Scientific Software. We’ve collaborated with OpenEye extensively for many years, including work on the SAMPL series of blind challenges and publishing several papers together. We also use their awesome (and free for academics!) chemistry and modeling toolkits extensively in-house and as the basis for other software we work on such as our new Open Forcefield initiative, so strengthening this relationship makes a lot of sense. We’re also very excited about OpenEye’s new Orion cloud platform as a way to build workflows to make our science more accessible and advance science by enabling new innovations to be tested and compared with one another more rapidly and easily. We’re also very excited about OpenEye’s plans to bring molecular dynamics onto Orion. So, it looks like there’s lots of great science to come!
