School of Thought for Drug Discovery
For many of us, undergraduate school means newfound independence, late-night study sessions and microwavable meals. But for Nick Cundy, a fourth-year chemistry student at the University of Birmingham in the UK, undergraduate school means having the chance to effectively manage relationships between senior academic researchers and Lilly scientists to uncover and create solutions using Lilly’s interactive Open Innovation Drug Discovery (OIDD) platform. Through OIDD, participants gain access to the company’s cutting-edge research tools and data in a hypothesis-driven approach to early drug discovery. For researchers at the University of Birmingham, OIDD has been instrumental in helping them advance biomedical science one molecule at a time.
