These powerful new products considerably extend Aureus’ knowledge management solution by providing our pharmaceutical customers unique access to the druggable therapeutic target space.” said Jason Theodosiou, President and CEO of Aureus Pharma. “Using AurSCOPE Knowledge databases, researchers can easily employ knowledge-driven hypotheses to drive better informed decisions during drug discovery.”
