Find-a-Drug to close
The Find-a-Drug project has now processed more queries than the original 250 we envisaged. We have also targetted most of the recognised protein targets for the major project areas. Where we have been able to obtain experimental data to confirm biological activity, the predictions have exceeded our expectations. Our experience suggests that it will be difficult to find collaborators who will be interested in the results of targetting proteins whose biological function is unknown or of little therapeutic interest.

We have concluded that there are insufficient worthwhile protein queries to continue the project into 2006 and have decided to close the project on 16 December 2005. We will continue to make some new queries available over the coming weeks but will not accept results after the close of the project.

We are obviously very grateful for the contributions of members and will continue to work with our collaborators.

Gutted...  But also proud of what we've achieved on the whole project, thanks to Keith for all his hard work.

Hopefully this forum will be a good place to discuss where we all go from here (after the next 6 weeks of hard THINKing, that is)...

kinda funny, i just got an email earlier tonight asking for my thoughts on various projects...was going to offer FaD as one of the places to check out, though guess it's a good thing i delayed replying. Smiley  would hate to have someone jumping projects several times.


edit: deleted the second thread....delayed double posting or something. Tongue

Surprising news. The worst part is now I don't have a viable alternative to draw people away from grid/UD, in terms of cancer-specific work  MrGreen

Maybe a few well placed posts in the FaD forums showing team members and friends over there to thedczone.com to carry on the conversation would be a good idea

Maybe get them into our teams to crunch united

Nasty mods.... humph!

Saw the news about FaD when I checked messages over at WCG.  I liked FaD for the variety of diseases you could crunch for.  I'm bummed that it is shutting down.  

I read also that WCG is looking at coming out with a cancer project.  I'm encouraged by that.  The HPF project also benefits cancer research, however:

Quote
By identifying the proteins that make up the Human Proteome, scientists can build the understanding needed for novel and effective treatments for diseases like cancer, HIV/AIDS, SARS, and malaria.


When/if grid deploys a new agent and hardware, I'll probably devote more machines back to that project, but I'm very comfortable with WCG for the time being.
