NBIC Faculty in leading positions in Open PHACTS consortium
27 May 2011
A new consortium of European organisations unite to support next generation drug discovery by providing a single view across data sources, bringing the semantic web to drug discovery. The Open PHACTS consortium, funded by the Innovative Medicines Initiative, will reduce the barriers to drug discovery by applying semantic technologies to available data resources, creating an Open Pharmacological Space.
NBIC Faculty members from the Leiden University Medical Centre, VU Amsterdam and Maastricht University are in leading positions in this consortium.
