CAChe Research
   Computer-Aided Chemistry & Biochemistry
                               Bio for David A. Gallagher, C.Chem. 

David studied chemistry at the University of Kent at Canterbury in England and at the University of London. He was one of the founding members of the CAChe Group in 1989, that developed the award-winning computer-aided chemistry tool, the CAChe WorkSystem, for experimental chemists and biochemists. David has continued to be active in the application and development of computational chemistry methods while working for Tektronix, Oxford Molecular, Fujitsu, and CAChe Research.

Research Project

   OpenTox – an EC funded FP7 Research Project (1 September 2008 – 2011)
   OpenTox is a EC funded project to create an open source framework and unified
   access to toxicity data and QSAR (quantitative structure-activity relationships)
   models with supporting validation and interpretation. OpenTox will address
   aspects of the REACH legislation and will extend access to non-animal-testing
   methods for toxicologists and other scientists who are not experts in QSAR.
