      Enhancing Collaboration between 
      Sponsors and Contract Partners in Drug Discovery

      Most contemporary drug discovery companies (Sponsors) outsource some (or all) drug development to external contract partners, e.g., Contract Research Organizations (CROs) and/or Contract Development and Manufacturing Organizations (CDMOs).  Communication between Sponsor and Contract organization is largely done via e-mail and poorly structured Excel reports which is a highly manual, inefficient, and error prone process.  Additionally, Sponsors of contracted work struggle with a common set of problems and challenges including:

      • Prioritizing and communicating the work to the CRO  
      • Onboarding and offboarding CRO resources  
      • Tracking the work at the CRO  
      • Masking proprietary information from the CRO to preserve the sponsors intellectual property  
      • Integrating the data from the CRO into the corporate data management systems

      Historically each sponsor has been isolated to solve these problems on their own, costing time and money, but today we announce a new capability being delivered in 2024 by Revvity Signals that adds fit-for-purpose CRO collaboration capabilities to Signals Notebook and Signals Research Suite.  This cutting-edge new product will leverage the Signals Platform and solve the common problems plaguing the standard sponsor-CRO interactions.

      What you will learn:

      1. Gain insights into the administration, collaboration, IP protection, and project management challenges facing Biopharmaceutical sponsors when they externalize drug discovery research.
      2. Learn how Signals Synergy, a new solution from Revvity Signals, redefines collaboration between biopharmaceutical sponsors and contract partners.
      3. Get a glimpse of the key capabilities inside Signals Synergy.

      Harnessing the Power of Antibody Drug Conjugates: 
      How the Signals™ Research Suite Advances Multi-Modal Drug Development

      The Signals™ Research Suite is the first integrated informatics platform purpose-built to accelerate multi-modal drug development like ADCs and is composed of a trio of scientific software applications:

      1. Signals™ Notebook: The premier cloud-based electronic lab notebook that facilitates creation and communication about molecules of interest via hierarchical editing language for macromolecules (HELM), powered Chemdraw®.
      2. Signals™ VitroVivo: For data analysis, visualization, and curve fitting bioassay results for standardized and consistent results, powered by Spotfire®.
      3. Signals™ Inventa: Enabling multi-assay or multi-study comparison, powered by Spotfire, with the ability to find the best candidate to move forward, accelerating decision making. Researchers gain better visibility into ADC candidate profiling and can quickly determine structure-activity and structure-property relationships across modalities to select optimal conjugation sites and pairings.

      Attendees will gain insights into the latest trends and challenges in ADC development, informed by recent research and advancements in the field. The presentation will also emphasize the importance of integrating various data types and sources in the ADC development process, showcasing how the Signals Research Suite facilitates this integration, thereby driving more efficient, safer drug development.
