'Biomedical Facebook' launches to speed up cancer research

'Biomedical Facebook' launches to speed up cancer research | science | Scoop.it

A new drug discovery website that aims to be a 'Facebook for researchers' has launched with a mission to accelerate cancer drug research.

 

Granatum.org wants to bring together biomedical researchers from pharma, universities and research institutes and make it easier for them to interact and cooperate.

 

The site provides access to the biomedical knowledge and data resources needed to prepare complex experiments to identify novel agents for cancer prevention and to design experimental studies.

 

It hopes that by helping researchers to build and share hypotheses, search databases, and design and execute in-silico experiments, potential chemoprevention drugs can be better screened ahead of any in-vitro and in-vivo testing. This, in turn, should speed up oncology research and even reduce costs.
