Speeding the Iterative Drug Design Process

In this paper, we explore the issues in the effective use of modern pharmaceutical data mining applications. We discuss the development and capabilities that were built into the Discovery 360° application to address these issues, as part of Wyeth Pharmaceuticals Next Generation IT project (NextGen). Wyeth found that simplifying data access and integration of data analysis and collaboration tools, improves both the quality and effectiveness of discovery research and best leverages the intellectual assets of the scientific team.
