AI-Powered Prior Art Analysis on CAS STNext

CAS has developed an AI-based prior art search technology, which is now available in CAS STNext®. The Prior Art Analysis generates a set of relevant patent and non-patent literature references published prior to the starting patent document. 




This webinar considers subsequent analysis of the prior art results for insight into the searched technology and discovery of new search terms, as well as a brief overview of the latest CAS STNext features, followed by demonstrations and examples of the tool in CAS STNext. 

Use cases will consider analysis of CA Concepts, CAS Registry Numbers®, patent classifications, and more. Learn how the AI-based Prior Art Analysis may provide new options for your patent search.

Molecular Glues in Drug Discovery: Solutions that Stick for the Undruggable

Molecular glues have emerged as a promising approach for drug discovery to treat a wide range of diseases such as cancer, and inflammatory and immune diseases. Conventional small molecule inhibitors can only target a small portion of disease-causing proteins, leaving the majority as undruggable. However, protein degradation utilizing small molecule glues is able to recruit non-druggable proteins for rapid destruction.

Join Philip Chamberlain the Co-Founder, President, and CEO of Neomorph, Dr. Benjamin Ebert, the Chair of Medical Oncology of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and Janet Sasso, Information Scientist at CAS as they discuss a landscape view of the research and drug discovery efforts for molecular glues, and applications in the treatment of diseases.
