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.’
Stereochemistry is a science of reflection. Two chemical molecules with the same composition and structure, but with one as the mirror image of the other, can produce wildly varying effects. But University of Utah chemist Matt Sigman has been developing a way to get a better grasp on this tricky field of chemistry.READ MORE
