BioData West: Day 1 @ 14:20

A computational approach for identifying synergistic drug combinations- fuelling a new generation of drug combinations to treat cancers

  • Identification of the right combinations through trial and error, a labor and resource intensive process whose scale quickly escalates as more drugs can be combined
  • Engaging in the development of a broad computational approach for predicting synergistic combinations using easily obtainable single drug efficacy.
  • How does this allow you to forego a detailed mechanistic understanding of drug function, and limited drug combination testing?
  • Why is this method impactful for identification of drug synergy to drive new effective cancer cures into the clinic?
