Past EventFebruary 12 NMBio Meeting – Informatics In Drug Discovery and Repurposing

UNM’s Translational Informatics Division (TiD) provides informatics solutions that enable multi-disciplinary research in order to accelerate clinical outcomes. TiD accomplishes this by offering many unique services to both industry and academia such as chemical, biological and biomedical knowledge mining support and prediction by means of cheminformatics, bioinformatics and clinical informatics software and technologies. CARLSBAD is a recent example of a software platform TiD developed in order to provide researchers with novel capabilities for the mining and exploration of structure activity relationships throughout chemical biology space. Currently TiD is focused on the development of informatics tools to facilitate the understanding of the relationships between drugs, targets and adverse events by mapping information mined from electronic health records and other scientific literature.
