July 18 Hackathon brings AI to the pharmaceutical field

UD’s AI Center of Excellence and Data Science Institute will host the ATOM Hackathon

Students, faculty and research staff are invited to participate in the UD Accelerating Therapeutics for Opportunities in Medicine (ATOM) Hackathon from July 18 to July 20 in room 591 of the FinTech Innovation Hub.

The goal of this three-day in-person event is to build predictive models for molecular modeling and computational drug discovery, with prizes being awarded in four categories: technical complexity, remarkable impact, problem statement execution, and creativity.

Participants in the Hackathon will use and enhance the ATOM Modeling Pipeline, a living software project and pipeline for data curation, model building and molecular property prediction that is designed to improve the process of drug identification.

The ATOM Hackathon is being organized by UD’s AI Center of Excellence and Data Science Institute in collaboration with the Frederick National Lab for Cancer Research, ATOM Consortium, University of California San Francisco, and Lawrence Livermore National Lab. The partnering organizations hope that participants can build upon the ATOM Modeling Pipeline, so that the technology can be used to speed the process of pharmaceutical development.

ATOM is a consortium dedicated to improving the process of drug discovery through developing a pre-clinical drug design and optimization platform that shortens the discovery timeline.

The registration deadline is June 17. To learn more and register, please visit: https://sites.udel.edu/ai/ud-atom-hackathon/.
