Moleculomics were proud to sponsor the 2016 British Science Festival, hosted by Swansea University this year.
The British Science Festival is Europe’s longest-standing national event which connects people with scientists, engineers, technologists and social scientists. Organised by the British Science Association (BSA), the event was first held in York in 1831 and then annually at cities across the UK. The British Science Festival returns to Swansea for the fifth time, having previously been hosted by the city in 1848, 1880, 1971 and, most recently, in 1990.
Moleculomics founder and CEO, Dr Jonathan Mullins, commented “Sponsoring an event such as the BSF is great for us to be able to do and makes perfect sense for us – we are a technology spin out of Swansea University and so naturally highly aligned to the aims of the British Science Festival in disseminating ground-breaking work with both the scientific community and the general public”.
The event saw thousands of people come together to celebrate the latest developments in science and to engage in open discussion about issues that affect our culture and society. The four day event comprising talks and performances from across the scientific spectrum, was held across the university campus and the city of Swansea.
As a vehicle for the advancement of alternative technologies for small molecule discovery and purposing, Moleculomics, a UK university spin-out company formed in 2012 has developed powerful in silico protein structural modelling and ligand docking platforms, at proteome-scale for simulating real-life conditions and molecular interactions at whole system level. R&D is built on a track record of structural modelling research featured in >50 journal publications. Over the past four years Moleculomics have been delivering commercial R&D programs including both Hit-to-Lead and toxicity screening work in prestigious projects with UK Ministry of Defence (MoD), Unilever, Dow and NC3Rs resulting in a range of technologies described as “world leading”.
