Lhasa Limited, together with partners Multicase, Leadscope and Molecular Networks GmbH, will unveil the Insilicofirst project at the 48th Annual Meeting of the Society of Toxicology. The Insilicofirst launch event will take place on Monday 16th March at 6pm at the Sheraton Inner Harbor. Invited delegates will be able to meet representatives from all four collaborating organisations, and find out more about the Insilicofirst system. There is no charge to participate in the session, nor is there a need to be registered for the SOT Annual Meeting.
The event will include a project overview and demonstration of the new Insilicofirst common user interface. In addition there will be an opportunity for networking, with refreshments provided.
There are only a limited number of places remaining, if you would like to be considered as a delegate, please email marketing(at)lhasalimited.org. expressing why this project is of interest to you.
Insilicofirst brings together the world's leading organisations in toxicity prediction systems. This is a partnership combining highly regarded scientific knowledge with expertise in in silico predictive software development. This strategic alliance has a ground breaking plan to develop an integrated prediction system to support environmental toxicological assessment.
The four partners are currently completing the first step towards achieving their challenging objective, as development of a common user interface using their respective toxicity tools nears completion. The Insilicofirst alliance will soon begin work on an integrated prediction system to support environment toxicological assessment, an area not covered by their existing tools.
Via one simple interface the new environmental toxicity application will integrate tools commonly available for in silico prediction to provide data and predictions relating to the environmental impact of a chemical structure input by the user. Such a novel development has clear and appealing attraction to many players within the field of environmental toxicology.
The Insilicofirst collaboration will address the need to reduce the amount of time spent by scientists in referencing disparate sources of data to aid decision making related to environmental toxicity.
Also, it will offer an efficient and cost-effective response to the EU REACH legislation and the desire to reduce animal testing. Financial and time costs will be dramatically reduced through the provision of a predictive in silico device containing a high quality knowledge base built from diverse and reliable data sources.
At the 48th SOT meeting in March 2009, the Insilicofirst alliance will demonstrate for the first time the collaborative path they will pursue in creating the world's fastest and most user-friendly suite of tools to support the prediction of environmental toxicity.
