Metabolon Enters into Collaboration with GSK
News May 14, 2014
The collaboration will give GSK access to Metabolon’s bioinformatics tools along with the company’s proprietary disease ontologies, as well as visualization tools that will integrate metabolomics data with existing genomics and proteomics data. John Ryals, Metabolon President and CEO commented, “We are pleased to announce a collaboration with GSK. We believe that embedding metabolomic profiling capabilities at the various stages of R&D is important to enhance the phenotypic ‘picture’ with the aim of yielding translatable, meaningful results. Gaps of knowledge can be bridged through the understanding metabolomics provides, which could lead to better targets, higher quality molecules, faster time to the clinic and reduced risk and cost.”
Metabolon, Inc. has completed thousands of metabolomics studies across numerous therapeutic areas and has developed expertise in metabolic pathways and targets that are involved in the onset of disease and its progression. Metabolon’s technology platforms are robust and known for their rapid, repeatable results. Expert, credentialed biochemists interpret biological data to yield actionable insight into key disease metabolic processes, drug action, and patient response.
Neural Computer Hears Like HumansNews
Modelling the human senses is an incredibly complex task. Our brains arrange cells into complex hierarchies that process information from our surroundings. Now, a group at MIT have created a model of the human auditory cortex that can hear sounds and music in the same way that humans do.READ MORE
"Genetic Jenga" Helps Understand How Our Genes Control Our CellsNews
To fully understand how our cells work, we can't focus on just one gene, but must instead look at combinations of genes. Researchers have published a study which knocked out multiple genes, like removing bricks from a Jenga tower, to better understand how they work together.READ MORE
