Dr. DAVID MOBLEY HELPS SPEARHEAD NEW OPEN FORCE FIELD CONSORTIUM
Dr. David Mobley was recently involved in the launch of a new pharma-funded research initiative with the Molecular Software Sciences Institute (“The MolSSI”). Mobley was one of two academics spearheading the new Open Force Field Consortium. The Consortium was designed to bring together researchers from both academia and the industry to collaborate and improve computer models used to guide pharmaceutical drug discovery.
“Force fields represent the foundation of molecular simulations and modeling — a real community resource. Everyone uses them, but improving them is an often unglamorous task.” Says Mobley “We’re very excited that our industry partners recognize the importance of this problem and have joined us to help support this important initiative.”
