Pharmaceutical companies are faced with a range of challenges in identifying targets, drug design and translational research.

To navigate this complex research environment and make the right decisions to advance your discovery efforts, you need to:

  • Understand diseases
  • Identify and validate drug targets
  • Understand MOA
  • Prioritize indications
  • Reposition drugs & identify drug combinations
  • Identify biomarkers and stratify patients
  • Evaluate toxicity and side effects

Our discovery and translation sciences service experts support our customers with:

Translational data management

  • Data curation, data standards, custom infrastructure development, tranSMART services


  • Data analysis to generate testable hypotheses, data analysis by providing researchers with advanced analytics

Knowledge management

  • Knowledge extracted and organized from biomedical literature and databases

Data integration and analysis

  • OMICs, clinical, pre-clinical, microbiome, wearable, literature and databases

We are in a unique position with access to comprehensive in-house content from Clarivate Analytics trusted databases to provide the breadth of data you need including: 1,700,000+ molecular interactions, 1,600+ pathways, and 230,000+ gene-disease associations from Metabase and 500,000 drugs and biologics from Integrity.

What we do

Bioinformatics Services

Get actionable insights and custom advanced analytics to accelerate your research
