Bio-Modeling Systems (BM Systems) Partner
Bio-Modeling Systems (BM Systems) and Persistent Systems have come together to develop a much needed solution that will address the pharma and cosmetic industries’ need for predictive modeling of skin in silico. “Bio-Modeling Systems scientists have pioneered heuristic biological modeling with their CADI™* platform. By coupling this with Persistent Systems’ strength in mathematical modeling and IT, we will develop a viable in silico alternative to animal testing.”
The strategic initiative is the world’s first collaborative effort that marries non-mathematical heuristic modeling with mathematical modeling designed to increase the success rates of drug discovery and formulation development by pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries. A key deliverable of this joint initiative is the development of a predictive in silico or computer simulated skin model that will help eliminate the need to use animals in contact allergy testing.
