Physiomics Announces License Agreement with Eli Lilly
News Apr 06, 2009
Physiomics, the Oxford, UK based systems biology company has announced that it has signed a license agreement with Eli Lilly and Company.
Under the terms of the agreement, Physiomics will license to Lilly a customized version of its ModelPlayer for in silico simulations of unspecified anticancer drugs and Lilly will have the option to purchase additional licenses.
According to Physiomics, its ModelPlayer is a stand-alone simulation platform used for in-house model development that can be out-licensed to partners to allow them to perform their own simulations using Physiomics’ models. It incorporates a range of features necessary for developing and calibrating models and simulating anticancer drugs.
Dr Christophe Chassagnole, COO of Physiomics, said: ‘We are delighted with the continued interest shown by Lilly in Physiomics’ technology. We hope that the capability for Lilly scientists to directly use Physiomics’ models will strengthen the quality of the interactions within our ongoing research collaborations. This is also an important commercial and technical milestone for Physiomics as this is the first time that we have out-licensed our technology.’
New Chemical Synthesis Process: Synergy of Two Catalysts in One FlaskNews
Researchers report the one-step synthesis of a ketone from an aldehyde by the combination of thiazolium N-heterocyclic carbene and palladium/bisphosphine catalysts in one flask. The two catalysts function in a synergistic manner. This study is expected to lead to new synthesis processes of precursor compounds for medications.READ MORE
