IDBS Acquires InforSense to Provide End-to-End Solutions for R&D Data Management
News Jun 29, 2009
IDBS has announced that it has concluded an unconditional agreement to acquire InforSense Ltd (InforSense), a company providing scientific and business intelligence (BI) technologies, in an all-cash transaction. The acquisition will complete in July.
R&D organizations in the public and private sectors rely upon their ability to capture, integrate and interpret their data. This is hampered by the explosion in volume and diversity of data available to scientists, the global scale of modern R&D activities and the requirement for data to be accessed and searched in context.
InforSense’s data integration technologies and web-based interactive analytics complement IDBS’ suite of secure, context-rich data management solutions. This transaction creates a supplier who can deliver the entire capture, integration and decision-making infrastructure for R&D organizations worldwide.
With the addition of the InforSense product portfolio, IDBS will expand its large scale data integration activities to support international data sharing and broaden its life sciences portfolio into the emerging growth area of biomarker development and personalized medicine.

Algorithm Predicts Life Expectancy After Heart AttackNews
A new algorithm developed by UCLA researchers more accurately predicts which people will survive heart failure, and for how long, whether or not they receive a heart transplant. The algorithm would allow doctors to make more personalized assessments of people who are awaiting heart transplants, which in turn could enable health care providers to make better use of limited life-saving resources and potentially reduce health care costs.
Computation and Chemistry Combine to Create World-First Auxetic ProteinNews
A team of chemists at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) has now designed a two-dimensional protein crystal that toggles between states of varying porosity and density. This is a first in biomolecular design that combined experimental studies with computation done on supercomputers. The research, published in April 2018 in Nature Chemistry, could help create new materials for renewable energy, medicine, water purification, and more.
