Aureus Pharma Extends its Knowledge Database Agreement with Sanofi-Aventis R&D
News Nov 06, 2009
Aureus Pharma has announces the extension of its knowledge database agreement with sanofi-aventis research & development for an additional three-year term.
Under the agreement, Aureus will provide new AurSCOPE® knowledge databases and continue to update existing databases for sanofi-aventis' R&D division. The Aureus Pharma databases will give sanofi-aventis researchers access to information on major therapeutic targets. These include GPCR protein receptors, nuclear receptors, kinase inhibitors, ion channels, as well as information relative to drug safety including data on ADME (absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion).
The new agreement reinforces the relationship between Aureus Pharma and sanofi-aventis, which has been in existence for seven years already. It also secures additional revenues for Aureus over the next three years.
"Sanofi-aventis' decision to extend the partnership for an additional three year period, as well as to acquire new knowledge bases, confirms the fact that Aureus' products are meeting the needs of the world's leading pharmaceutical companies," said Dr Jason Theodosiou, CEO of Aureus Pharma.
Aureus Pharma's information solutions are working for many of the world's most successful biopharmaceutical companies and prestigious research institutions.
It's easy to take a lot for granted. Scientists do this when they study stress, the force per unit area on an object. Scientists handle stress mathematically by assuming it to have symmetry, but new supercomputer simulations show that at the atomic level, material stress doesn't behave symmetrically. The findings could help scientists design new materials such as glass or metal that doesn't ice up.READ MORE
In late 2017 DeepMind introduced AlphaZero, a single system that taught itself from scratch how to master the games of chess, shogi (Japanese chess), and Go, beating a world-champion program in each case. Today, they announce the evalutation of AlphaZero, published in the journal Science, that confirms and updates those preliminary results.
