Challenge

Hager Biosciences is a start-up drug discovery organization working in the pre-clinical space. The researchers seek to develop lead compounds for unmet medical needs. They need access to reliable and accurate medicinal chemistry data along with compound synthesis methodologies. Searching for such information in disparate sources and then having to normalize it would take considerable time.
