This month, we are very lucky to have Dr. Gerald J. Wyckoff, from UMKC, as our speaker.   His area is Molecular Biology and Biochemistry.   “With a focus on how evolutionary knowledge can factor into drug discovery, Dr. Wyckoff has been at work creating and deploying new algorithms for better handling the targets of new chemical entities.”       

Presentation abstract:

There is currently no accepted structure or best practices for accommodating data originating across human and animal health settings. This is leading to a “gap” in our ability to share data among researchers who are working on essentially the same problem across species- not just between humans and animals, but among disparate animal species.    

Now, that sounds like it could be very interesting!   You undoubtedly will learn something you never dreamed about knowing.    Come and find out…..
