Physiomics plc (AIM: PYC), a leading mathematical modelling company supporting oncology drug development and personalised medicine solutions, announces the signature of a Collaborative Services Agreement with ValiRx’s wholly owned subsidiary Inaphaea BioLabs Limited.
The agreement recognises the synergy between Inaphaea’s growing capabilities as a translational contract research organisation (tCRO®) providing in-vitro laboratory-based services and Physiomics’ in-silico capabilities for advanced statistical analyses, machine learning techniques, data handling and visualisation, as well as biological modelling.
Under the agreement, service users of Inaphaea will be able to benefit from Physiomics capabilities in a single service contract with Inaphaea. Designed to offer a seamless integration of data generation and data interpretation, this collaborative method of working provides benefits to both companies as well as to the service users.
Dr Jim Millen, CEO at Physiomics commented “The Collaborative Service Agreement will expand the scope of our core consulting business to discovery stage projects and improve our access to clients focused on earlier stages of drug development, while at the same time supporting Inaphaea’s own service offering. The synergy is clear and both the scientific and commercial ambitions of our two companies are well matched. We look forward to working closely with ValiRx through this initiative”
Dr Suzy Dilly, CEO at ValiRx explains “The Collaborative Services Agreement is the first step towards converting Inaphaea into a true tCRO®. The Physiomics modelling skills will enable our clients to interpret and build on the data generated within the Inaphaea facility. I am delighted to be able to offer this additional service module to our clients. This additional value-added service will be available to our first service users, with benefits expected to increase as more complex data generation technologies are added to our capabilities”
