Titian Software Expands US offices
News Oct 27, 2009
The move comes following continued company growth across Europe and the US, with 10 of the Top 20 pharma/biotech companies now using Titian’s Mosaic sample management software. The larger US premises will house sales and support activities of Titian Software US.
Richard Fry, Commercial Director of Titian commented, “The US has always been an important market for Titian and today approximately half our installations are in the States. I am therefore delighted, despite the current economic climate, to be able to further invest in the US to strengthen our local customer support.” He continued, “Relocation to larger premises gives us room to recruit additional staff in the US to meet current demand and maintain our high level of customer service.”

Computer bits are binary, with a value of 0 or 1. By contrast, neurons in the brain can have all kinds of different internal states, depending on the input that they received. This allows the brain to process information in a more energy-efficient manner than a computer. A new study hopes to bring the two closer together.
MIT researchers have developed a cryptographic system that could help neural networks identify promising drug candidates in massive pharmacological datasets, while keeping the data private. Secure computation done at such a massive scale could enable broad pooling of sensitive pharmacological data for predictive drug discovery.
