An open-source approach to disease and drug research.

CDD’s goal is to help scientists optimally select and advance novel drug discovery candidates.

This is accomplished via:

  • A highly-networked virtual drug discovery and development community
  • Scientists can securely collaborate with their drug discovery data, information, knowledge and intellectual property
  • Build deep technical collaborations to help researchers advance the most promising drug discovery assets
