Cresset is delighted to announce the launch of its major new access program for academic users of its range of chemistry software tools at the American Chemical Society (ACS) show in Anaheim from March 27-31, at booth 664. This program provides academic users with a range of ways to access Cresset’s products, including a software bursary program, free training licences for academic courses as well as low cost academic group licences and free downloads for some of Cresset’s products.
Rob Scoffin, CEO of Cresset said, “We have created a range of free or low-cost licensing options to help academic researchers, teachers and students to use the very best chemistry software available. These programs are designed to support bona fide students and academics in their internal research and teaching use.”

Cresset’s Academic Access program will offer the following options to academic researchers, educators and students:

Software Bursaries - Cresset will offer free one year named user licenses for its desktop products (FieldStere, FieldAlign and FieldTemplater) to any post-graduate, PhD and post-doc students enrolled in a degree course.

About Cresset Group Ltd
Cresset develops software for calculating and comparing the molecular Field characteristics of chemical compounds. Field technology uses the surface properties of molecules to evaluate their activities and properties, rather than relying on 2D structure similarity, which enables Cresset’s users to find more interesting, novel and relevant results than other methods. Cresset’s Fields provide a smarter, structure independent way of hit-finding, lead switching and lead optimization in drug discovery and other chemistry-based research projects. Cresset’s Field technologies have been successfully applied to a very wide range of target classes, with and without structural information, on over 100 projects for major pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.
