Open Chat - Open Research

Join Dr. Aled Edwards as he speaks about open research.

Speaker

Dr. Aled Edwards is founder and Chief Executive of the Structural Genomics Consortium (SGC), a research organization celebrated for being a pioneer of open science, particularly as it applies to protein science, chemical biology and drug discovery.

Aled leads the six SGC laboratories from the SGC headquarters in Canada. 

Aled is a Professor at the University of Toronto, Visiting Professor at the University of Oxford and Adjunct Professor at McGill University. He has published over 200 papers and his teams have contributed over 4,000 structures into the Protein Data Bank, as of 2019.  Aled has also founded many companies, including Affinium Pharmaceuticals, which developed a novel antibiotic currently in late-stage clinical trials, and M4K Pharma, the first pharmaceutical company formed explicitly to invent new, and affordably-priced, medicines.
