Distillery Dashboard

A BioCentury Quick Guide

Download Quick Guide

BioCentury's Distillery is a curated collection of top translational studies in the scientific literature identifying new target opportunities, or new technologies for established targets.

Distillery items provide brief summaries of peer-reviewed papers from academia describing preclinical innovations with disease-modifying effects. Each month, BioCentury publishes 20-40 new Distillery items!

The Distillery Dashboard makes it easy to search for innovations in topics of interest, find licensing and partnering opportunities for your portfolios, and build networks in specific geographies, disease areas or target spaces.

  1. Hover over Analysis from the top navigation bar and click Distillery.

Distillery Dashboard

The Distillery Dashboard provides a table showcasing the translational discoveries in each study, the names and locations of the corresponding authors, the targets and diseases being investigated, and the innovation’s licensing status.

Below the search bar, you can toggle between All Items, Therapeutics Only or Technologies Only for a more specified search. Distillery items on Technologies such as platforms, biomarkers and tools are available through 2019; since then, these innovations have been covered in our Translation in Brief feature.

The Paper date and Geography filters will work on all Distillery articles. The Paper date can filter on a single year or multiple years by marking the checkboxes. You can also click the chevron next to a year to select the specific months you want to focus on.

The Geography filter allows you to find papers based on where the study’s corresponding authors are located. Clicking a chevron will show the available countries in that region for more focused searching.

There are also some new filters for Patent, License, Innovation Type and Experimental System. These filters apply to Distillery items published since 2Q22.

The Patent filter can be used to find a specific patent status, like patented, application filed or status undisclosed, just to name a few.

The License filter has options such as licensed, unlicensed, available for partnering or status undisclosed.

The Innovation Type filter has three options: Biology, Technology and Biology; Technology. Biology innovations identify new targets for a disease, and Technology innovations describe new preclinical therapeutic compounds. Papers in the Distillery may include one innovation type, or both.

The Experimental System filter allows you to narrow down the Distillery items according to the model systems used, with options like Cell Culture, In vitro, Mice and Patient samples.

Finally, the Distillery Dashboard also has an interactive search feature using the region bar graph, institution table or investigator bar graph. Selecting a bar, like for the Americas, or an institution, like Harvard Medical School, will filter the items in the Distillery table accordingly.
