Tokyo, Japan • June 4-5, 2015

JCUP is OpenEye's annual Japanese science meeting. An off-shoot of our CUP meeting held in Santa Fe, this meeting aims to bring together our Japanese users with other leading scientists both inside and out of OpenEye to discuss the challenges of drug discovery.

  • A message from the organizer of JCUP VI
    This year’s JCUP will showcase a variety of modeling methodologies, with a continued focus on protein-ligand interactions, but with an additionally refined emphasis on statistical validation for conclusions. As structural biology projects continue to progress, crystal packing and key water molecules are crucial areas that will receive focus at this meeting. Special attention will be given to leveraging cloud computing for productivity gains. With extended time for interaction among participants, this years JCUP is bound to be beneficial to everyone in molecular modeling and pharmaceutical-related fields.
    – J.B. Brown, (Kyoto University, JCUP VI Facilitator)
