DATATHON ON OPEN TARGETS: In partnership with EMBL- EBI & GSKPart 1: Discoveringthe open targets platformOpen Targets is an innovative, large-scale, multi-year, public-private partnership that uses human genetics and genomics data for systematic drug target identification and prioritisation.Visit theOpen Targets Platformwhich provides an integration of public domain data to enable target identification and prioritisation.Generating and interpreting the data required to identify a good drug target demands a diverse set of skills, backgrounds, evidence types and technologies, which do not exist today in any single entity. Open Targets brings together expertise from four complementary institutions to systematically identify and prioritise targets from which safe and effective medicines can be developed.Our goals are to:
  • Systematically find the best targets to safely & effectively treat disease
  • Help others find good targets
  • Get those targets adopted into drug discovery pipelines
We currently focus on oncology, immunology and neurodegeneration through an R&D framework that can be applied to all aspects of human disease
