Foundation / Corporation
In-kind support to USA, Canada, and International scientists at nonprofit research institutions and IHEs to discover new life-saving medication. Services are intended to support proposals involving protein targets that are implicated in human disease.
The goal of this program is to broaden the pool of scientists pursuing drug discovery. To advance this goal, Atomwise will award researchers with a customized virtual screen using cutting-edge Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology, free chemical compounds for physical screening, and technical support from medicinal chemists and computational biologists.
Atomwise will consider any project that could benefit from Atomwise's expertise and technology. Project topics may be in any area, including those in animal health, biotechnology, human biology, medicine, microbiology, plant biology, and virology.
Ideally, applicants will have both of the following:
GrantWatch ID#: 187047
AIMS Awards provide researchers with the following at no cost:
- Customized virtual screen of chemical compounds using AtomNet™;
- Approximately 72 Small molecule compounds predicted to bind to their selected protein;
- Compounds that can serve as controls, if available;
- Ordering of compounds from suppliers, resuspension and dilution to a convenient concentration and aliquoted onto microtiter plates, QC verification by mass spectrometry, and delivery to the researcher’s lab;
- Randomized “blinding” of compounds;
- Support from Atomwise medicinal chemists and computational biologists; and
- Additional chemical compounds and support if criteria are met.
