The Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC) is a leading provider of structural databases and software for pharmaceutical discovery, materials development, research and education.
The CCDC compiles and distributes the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD), the world's repository of experimentally determined organic and metal-organic crystal structures, and related applications software including GOLD and Relibase+.
Originating in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Cambridge, the CCDC is now a fully independent institution constituted as a non-profit company and a registered charity since 1987.
With over 45 years of scientific expertise the CCDC has a strong track record in basic research through more than 700 peer-reviewed publications.
The CCDC employs around 40 staff and hosts occasional visiting scientists and students who are working on projects related to the Cambridge Structural Database or other CCDC products.
