Strand Genomics, a Bangalore-based life sciences informatics company announced today that it has received a grant of about $1 million for developing in silico hepato-toxicity predictive models. The grant is from the Technology Group at ICICI and the Sponsored Research and Development Program (SPREAD) fund of the World Bank in India.
Strand will collaborate with Central Drug Research Institute (CDRI), a pioneer research organization in the field of biomedical research in India for this effort. Strand will develop a modeling approach, primarily employing systems biology techniques to capture pathway dynamics in liver toxicity studied via mathematical representations and analysis of computationally intensive simulations. Scientists at CDRI would design and run assays to support the modeling effort at Strand.
