BSC participates in eTRANSAFE, a project for new drug safety assessment and integrative data analysis research

13 September 2017

Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) participates in eTRANSAFE through ELIXIR, which is one of the 26 international partners in this project.

The five-year project, Enhancing Translational Safety Assessment through Integrative Knowledge Management (eTRANSAFE), aims to develop an advanced data integration infrastructure together with innovative computational methods to improve the security in drug development process. The eTRANSAFE project aims at improving the safety assessment across the drug discovery and development process by applying bioinformatics approaches to shared preclinical and clinical data to systematically analyse the translatability of effects. Thus, enabling the optimisation of resources and the development of safer medicines.
