The Cambridge Structural Database reaches one million structures
- 06 Jun 2019

The Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC), experts in structural chemistry data, software and knowledge for materials and life science research and application, has announced a huge milestone for structural chemistry with the addition of the millionth structure into the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD).

The CSD is the world's repository of highly curated experimentally determined organic and metal-organic crystal structures. It is used globally by scientists in over 70 countries to understand how molecules behave and interact in three dimensions in the solid form and ultimately how this affects physical properties.

As the interest in 'Big Data' continues to grow in a time where machine learning and automation are changing the way pharmaceutical, agrochemical and many other industries work, reaching such a significant milestone is a huge achievement for the CCDC and the wider scientific community that contribute to and rely on this resource.

Large volumes of data such as this enable scientists to generate more replete answers from a more complete and diverse volume of information, ensuring confidence in the insights being drawn from the data. Furthermore, CCDC's focus on ensuring the integrity of the data within the CSD through stringent quality assurance and control steps adds even more value and confidence that scientists are obtaining the highest quality information to inform their research.

This rich data resource, alongside advanced search, 3-D data mining, analysis and visualisation software from CCDC enables scientists from both industry and academia to further their research and predict new outcomes. In addition, knowledge derived from the CSD underpins computational chemistry and molecular modelling and is relied on by industry for the development and manufacturing of new drugs and within academia to teach chemistry.

CCDC have announced the 1,000,000th structure to be a N-heterocycle produced by a chalcogen bonding catalyst activating multiple reactions steps sequentially. In the paper the authors describe a class of extraordinary chalcogen-bonding catalysts which enable the assembly of discrete small molecules leading to the construction of N-heterocycles in a highly efficient manner. The structure was determined by Yao Wang and co-authors from Shandong University in China and published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS).

CCDC plans to further draw on insights and trends from the data to inform the direction of future research across different industries.

Elsevier's Via Oncology wins 2019 MedTech Breakthrough Award for innovation in cancer care
- 06 Jun 2019

MedTech Breakthrough, an independent organisation that recognises the top companies and solutions in the global health and medical technology market, has selected Elsevier's Via Oncology as the winner of its 'Best Computerized Decision Support Solution' award in the 2019 MedTech Breakthrough Awards program.

Elsevier's Via Oncology is a national leader in cancer care management and clinical decision support that incorporates advanced technology to identify and match eligible patients with clinical trial opportunities. Despite the rapidly growing rate of cancer worldwide, recruitment for clinical trials has become increasingly challenging, with fewer than 1 in 20 adults with cancer enrol in clinical trials.

Via Oncology aims to close this gap between cancer patients and clinical trial enrolment, as well as overall cancer care, by providing computerized decision support to increase enrolment rates and help ensure patients receive access to the most current and targeted therapies in development.

The MedTech Breakthrough Awards aim to honour excellence and recognise the innovation, hard work and success in a range of health and medical technology categories, including Robotics, Clinical Administration, Telehealth, Patient Engagement, Electronic Health Records (EHR), mHealth, Medical Devices, Medical Data and many more. This year's program attracted more than 3,500 nominations from over 15 different countries throughout the world.

Elsevier announced in January 2018 that it had acquired Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based Via Oncology, a former subsidiary of UPMC (University of Pittsburgh Medical Center), one of the nation's leading integrated healthcare delivery and financing systems.

Nominations for the Future Science Future Star Award 2019 now open
- 04 Jun 2019

Future Science OA, an open access biomedical journal published by Future Science Group, has announced that nominations for the third year of its early career research award are now open.

Originally launched in 2017 as the Early Career Research Award, the award is open to people within the first five years of their first academic appointment (post-doc onwards) who are making significant contributions to biomedical research and show promise for the future.

The winner will receive: £1000 to support their career; a webinar on their research topic; a video interview; a place on the Future Science OA Early Career Panel; and an opportunity to be a guest editor for a Special Focus Issue of FSOA based around their research field.

An expert judging panel will narrow the list of nominees down to a shortlist of candidates, following which there will be a public vote for the winner. Nominations close July 1, 2019.

For further details and to submit your nomination, interested parties may visit: https://www.future-science.com/journals/fso/category/earlycareerresearch/award.

HathiTrust Research Center selects five Advanced Collaborative Support projects
- 30 May 2019

HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC) has selected five projects for the fourth round of Advanced Collaborative Support (ACS) projects. The selected projects demonstrate a range of research approaches. They are likely to produce results that will benefit the larger HathiTrust and HTRC communities.

Awardees will be provided dedicated HTRC staff time to support their research using texts in the HathiTrust Digital Library for a period of up to one year. Proposals were reviewed on their feasibility, research methodology, and compatibility with HTRC staff resources, as well as the availability of requested data and potential to positively benefit a wide community of scholars.

The new projects include: Building large-scale collections of genre fiction; Mapping scientific names to the HathiTrust Digital Library; Supporting The Conglomerate Era Project; Deriving Basic Illustration Metadata; and Semantic Phasor Embeddings.
