The AI for Structure-Based Drug Discovery program (AISBDD) encourages a high level of engagement from industry

Corporate members are a vital and integral part of AISBDD.  They provide insight on real-world use cases, valuable financial support for research, and a path to large-scale impact.

Corporate engagement includes the following elements:
·       Opportunity to contribute to the definition of research projects
·       Opportunities to collaborate with Stanford researchers
·       Invitations to regular meetings (virtual and in person)
·       Research seminar announcements
·       Hosted visits to Stanford
·       Student recruitment opportunities
·       Opportunity to send a Visiting Scholar to Stanford
·       Priority for feature requests
·       Priority for bug fixes


Corporate members contribute $250,000 per year with the expectation of at least three years of membership and receive all benefits including the opportunity to inspire the research agenda, participate in the leadership of the program, and engage even more deeply with the faculty and students. AISBDD is a Stanford University industrial Affiliates Program and is subject to university policies for such programs including openness in research, publication and broad sharing of results, and faculty freedom to pursue research topics and methodology of their choice. Please see the Stanford University Policies Affecting Industrial Affiliates Program Membership for more details.

Affiliates Program members may provide additional funding. All research results arising from the use of the additional funding will be shared with all program members and the general public.  Affiliates Program members may request the additional funding be used to support a particular area of program research identified on the program’s website, or the program research of a named faculty member, as long as the faculty is identified on the program website as participating in the Affiliates Program. In either instance, the director of the Affiliates Program will determine how the additional funding will be used in the program’s research.

The site presentations and all information, data and results arising from such visitation interactions will be shared with all members and the public.

Intellectual Property

Stanford AISBDD researchers intend to release software under an open-source model, such as BSD.
