Virtual Liver Cells Optimize Drug Development

19 July 2007

Insilico Biotechnology AG from Stuttgart with new funding for systems biology research from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)

Since 2005, Insilico Biotechnology AG as an industrial partner in the federal HepatoSys competence network has been performing computer-based mapping and testing of liver cell metabolism. As a service provider in the systems biology sector, Insilico is responsible in particular for determining kinetic parameters using supercomputers. The aim is to model a »virtual liver cell« to enable physiological cell processes — such as the breakdown of drugs and toxic substances — to be followed »in silico«, i.e. on the computer. For the second project phase, this Stuttgart-based life science company is receiving Euro 250,000 of funding in the next three years. read more
