Advocating for science: a summary of key skills learned through a series of workshops

Adriana Bankston, Sarah Mazzilli & Gary McDowell
Developing tools and skills for science advocacy are critical for postdocs looking to foster change in their institutions, in academia, or in society at large. The “Advocating for Science” symposium and workshop was co-organized in Boston in September 2016 as a joint venture between the Future of Research, Academics for the Future of Science, and the MIT Graduate Student Council, to help junior scientists learn skills for advocacy. In the workshop component of the meeting,...

Predicting novel metabolic pathways through subgraph mining

Aravind Sankar, Sayan Ranu & Karthik Raman
In this talk, we present our tool, ReactionMiner, that can predict metabolic pathways to novel (unseen) molecules, by subgraph mining a reaction database, and using only the chemical structures of the molecules in the database. Our tool ReactionMiner is available from https://github.com/RamanLab/ReactionMiner

A drug-centric view of drug development: How drugs spread from disease to disease

Raul Rodriguez-Esteban
Drugs are often seen as ancillary to the purpose of fighting diseases. Here an alternative view is proposed in which they occupy a spearheading role. In this view, drugs are technologies with an inherent therapeutic potential. Once created, they can spread from disease to disease independently of the drug creator’s original intentions.
