We believe in freely sharing data and materials to speed up drug discovery and engage in the following Open Science activities:


Open data - Publishing in open access journals

Open access - Sharing protocols and providing training

Open intellectual property - Promoting open partnerships with industry

Open sharing - Making our reagents available
