We’re very excited about the Open Force Field Initiative, a new effort to help build better force fields and improve the infrastructure for developing them. And we’re especially excited that a pharmaceutical industry consortium has come together to help fund and guide this work. Check out our announcement for more details!
If you’d like to know more about our longer-term plans, check out graduate student Caitlin Bannan’s upcoming BioExcel Webinar Oct. 10 on her work in the context of the larger initiative.
I also have a recent OpenFF talk up on ResearchGate which gives a progress report and discusses some of our larger plans.
Update: The Consortium is also now hiring a postdoc.
