Welcome to NovaData Solutions!
I'm Mike Mazanetz, Director of NovaData Solutions. Our mission is to provide high quality computational chemistry and data informatics services and consultancy to the life science and chemical industries, using the latest cutting-edge tools and methodologies. NovaData Solutions will assist multi-nationals, SMEs and academic groups turn conceptual ideas into business products. If you are interested in KNIME support or training in fragment-based drug discovery, we're here to give your business the support it needs. NovaData Solution's robust computing setup allows us work from our base in Oxfordshire or to work on your site.
With over 15 years of experience gained in the chemical industry, I understand what drives innovation and successful project outcomes.
I completed a BSc(Hons) in both organic chemistry and biochemistry before studying a postgraduate MSc in synthetic chemistry, and later a PhD in computational and medicinal chemistry working in the design and synthesis of kinase inhibitors for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. I worked for Kodak before moving to work for Eli Lilly as a medicinal chemist for nearly 6 years. I was then at Evotec for 8 years working as a computational chemist, providing cheminformatics and molecular modelling support the drug discovery process. I am a certified KNIME coach and also a practitioner in the PRINCE2 project management method.
I am a Fellow of the Royal Society for Chemistry, and a Chartered Chemist of the Royal Australian Chemical Institute, and a member of the American Chemical Society. I sit on the Committee of the Molecular Modelling and Graphics Society and I also am a reviewer for a number of journals including:
- Journal of Medicinal Chemistry
- Journal of Chemical Information and Modeling
- Journal of Molecular Graphics and Modelling
- Journal of Computer Aided Molecular Design
- Letters in Drug Design and Discovery
- International Journal of Computational Biology and Drug Design
