Lead project “Leibniz-E-Center Bioactives”
This project – Leibniz Bioactives Cloud – develops a common, yet distributed platform for data mining, data analysis tools, information and data management and exchange. Please visit the project page (aforementioned link) for further information.
Dr. Bernd Rupp and Dr. med. André Lampe launched a PodCast “Wirkstoffradio”, dedicated to the topic of drug discovery. This podcast is uniquely dedicated to small active compounds within the german podcasts. It deliveres first hand information and explanations from experts to the interested public. Since its launch on 14.10.2018 four episodes have been produced.
Each story covers different aspects of its topic and is conviniently divided into different chapters accessible on its own. This is also how other media providers can link to parts or all of this podcasts.
The “Wirkstoffradio” links the work of the Research Alliance to the public and makes science more understandable to the public. It will also help to transfer knowledge on commonly used pharamceuticals or scientific techniques to the citizens.
Stay tuned – further episodes will follow soon!
