Network-Driven Drug Discovery – Circumventing the Limitations of Target-Driven Discovery

Over the past five years, e-Therapeutics have created a drug discovery engine based on a combination of large-scale, proprietary databases and a suite of computational tools. Small molecules are evaluated by their potential bioactivity in the search for better and more effective drugs to address unmet medical needs. This article outlines the core principles and advantages of the Network-Driven Drug Discovery (NDD) approach.

Next Generation Sequencing Technology: An Open Letter From Mostafa Ronaghi

Dear Colleagues,

Launched in 1990, the Human Genome Project involved thousands of scientists across the globe and took 13 years to complete. Using capillary electrophoresis-based Sanger sequencing, it cost nearly $3 billion. In 2014 Illumina announced the first technology that could sequence a whole genome for less than $1,000.

Challenges in Printing Hybrid Light Emitting Diodes

Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLEDs)

Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLEDs) are sub-micrometric devices formed by multi-stacked materials that have reached the appropriate Technological Readiness Level to be present in displays. Intense research has permitted the construction of diodes with long lifetimes, multi-colour emission and size variety.

Enabling Flexible Displays and Sensors With Organic Electronics

While most conventional electronics are based on silicon transistors, there are other approaches being developed that seek to enable truly flexible components. At FlexEnable we believe the only way you can make truly flexible electronics is to start with truly flexible materials, so we use plastics (also referred to as organic materials) instead of ceramics to make our transistors.

E-waste Recycling and Repurposing

Electronic waste (e-waste) is a fast growing problem. The UN estimates between 20-50 million tons of electronic waste is discarded every year, with only 12.5% of this being recycled. This leaves a colossal amount of e-waste sitting in landfill or improperly disposed of, which in turn leads to toxic materials leaching into the soil and water supply.
