Today marks the beginning of Science in the Age of Experience, the Dassault Systèmes user conference for advances in scientific research. BIOVIA, along with their sister brand and co-host SIMULIA, have planned a week of in-depth walkthroughs of their solutions, customer success stories, hands-on training and future product roadmaps. While today’s opening plenary session, which features appearances from Bernard Charlès, the CEO of Dassault Systèmes, Professor Martin Karplus, the 2013 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry and Mark Meili of P&G, promises an exciting start, tomorrow morning will keep up the pace with presenters from Sanofi, 3M and Amgen for our plenary sessions.
Patients with hemophilia must contend with impaired clotting, the complications of which can lead to severe physical effects. In the most extreme instance, a situation that results in prolonged bleeding in the brain can be ultimately fatal. Or, as a more chronic example, sustained bleeding in joints can result in […]
We at BIOVIA are very excited to host our Platinum and Gold premier partners at Science in the Age of Experience: Astrix and LabAnswer. Each provides unique services to help support scientific research and development initiatives across multiple industries.
Science in the Age of Experience, the 2016 user group meeting for the BIOVIA and SIMULIA brands of Dassault Systèmes, is just around the corner! Join over 500 of your colleagues, industry leaders, and product experts at the beautiful Boston Marriott Copley Place from May 23rd – 27th to learn about the latest 3DEXPERIENCE offerings for scientific research. If you have not already registered for Science in the Age of Experience, here are the top ten reasons why you do not want to miss this year’s event.
Keeping pace with a growing need for accelerated innovation is leaving the traditional experiment model of “design, test, repeat” in the dust. Unnecessary physical experimentation takes too long and costs too much. In response, today’s leaders in the CPG industry are embracing the benefits offered by in silico modeling and simulation. These organizations are exploring the varied physical and chemical interactions that power their products and optimizing them. They are making game-changing innovations that have allowed them to design new, groundbreaking products. These benefits offered by modeling and simulation go beyond improved agility or financial gains—they are transformative.
While we like to imagine research facilities as being centers of cutting edge technology and streamlined efficiency, sometimes the reality couldn’t be further from the truth. In many laboratories, researchers still rely on paper notebooks to hold all information pertaining to current experiments: protocols, calculations, assay parameters, and any deviations. […]
This year at Science in the Age of Experience, we at BIOVIA are very fortunate to have a very strong lineup of customer presentations to highlight the deeper functionalities of the BIOVIA solution portfolio. We believe that these presentations by customers, for customers, can provide some real-world insight into unique use cases which could be the source of transformative value at your organization.
Professor Martin Karplus, the 2013 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry and the Theodore William Richards Professor of Chemistry, emeritus at Harvard University will be providing a keynote address this year at Science in the Age of Experience. His research team focuses on understanding the electronic structure, geometry, and dynamics of molecules of chemical and biological interest. After three decades of work their research has produced the groundbreaking molecular modeling engine CHARMM.
Politicians have never been shy about picking targets upon which to build platforms or make their pet issues. Unfortunately, due to rising healthcare costs and the public perception of drug prices, the pharmaceutical industry has become an easy target. The pressure upon lawmakers to do something has become enough that even presidential hopefuls who have traditionally supported the pharmaceutical industry have taken to attacking manufacturers of biologic drugs and other medical therapies. It is perhaps not the most surprising turn of events, but the added attention puts companies in an awkward position. To further complicate matters, legislators aren’t waiting until after the upcoming Presidential election to take action. The future of the Trans-Pacific Partnership remains uncertain, but Congressional committees are ramping up industry oversight. Both the House and Senate has dedicated resources toward investigating pricing practices and taking action to curtail rising costs. The increased scrutiny has cast a shadow over recent successes of the pharmaceutical industry—namely that we’ve seen the accelerated development of major new therapies. In 2014, the FDA approved 41 new drugs, 10 of which were biologic drugs.
The following is a guest post by Dan Jones, Director of Marketing Programs, BIOVIA. At the BioIT World Conference in Boston earlier this month, vendors and customers highlighted Scientific Collaboration as a major theme in drug discovery. Interestingly, over 90% of pharma and biotech companies do not yet have a […]
