Aureus Pharma changes name to Aureus Sciences
7 Feb 2011
Aureus Pharma, a provider of knowledge management solutions
for the life sciences industry, has changed it name to Aureus Sciences,
and launched a new web portal to bring better access to its range of
advanced drug discovery tools and knowledge.
Aureus Sciences has built its new web portal around its unique
knowledge platform, the culmination of ten years’ intensive
development. This analyzes, indexes and organizes critical chemical
and bioactivity information of the druggable genome into
best-in-class scientific databases for use by researchers involved
in the drug-discovery process.
The portal is designed to provide easier access and live
experience for Aureus Sciences’ highly sophisticated tools with
several search and visualization options. It is unique in offering
access to editorial content, the application server and community
networks. The tools include applications and content, as well as
help for users to understand the value of proposed solutions better
and faster in a unique way.
Medicinal chemists, pharmacologists, drug metabolism and
pharmacokinetics scientists can navigate in the portal and conduct
searches in Aureus’ knowledgebases that contain more than three
million biological activities.
Scientists can also filter results, such as compound activity,
therapeutic target affinity, ADME (Absorption, Distribution,
Metabolism and Excretion) and DDI (Drug Drug Interaction)
properties. A unique feature of the portal is the display of results
in a scientifically relevant context through a selection of
“dashboards” that show detailed coverage of the topics in Aureus
Sciences’ knowledge space.
Further drill-down searches are also available free of charge to
registered users for a limited period of time. Full access is
available under a named user license agreement.
“The new Aureus-Sciences application portal is a major
achievement for our company,” said Dr Jason Theodosiou, president &
CEO of Aureus Sciences. “For the first time we are offering a unique
single-point access to all of our tools, applications, notes,
scientific communications and technical documentation. This will
make it substantially easier for our prospective customers to make
use of our know-how, provide more comprehensive interaction and help
them accelerate their research projects with data they can trust.”
