New Challenges in Physiogenomics

Organising, validating and selecting the relevant information is the key to making the right decisions during drug, and other, development. Understanding complex disease pathways by observing the function and interaction of genes (physiogenomics), and discovering new targets and lead candidates has become a major challenge now that massive amounts of information are available through the various high-throughput technologies.This article discusses new tools, including bioinformatics, that overcome existing limitations such as reproducibility, sensitivity and specificity for data analysis, disease space identification, drug development and patient clustering. In the genomic age, the rapid discovery of new therapeutic strategies for multi-factorial diseases relies on the identification and comparison of correlates and cross talks between functional pathways in human and animal models. Understanding these pathways that drive the progression of complex pathologies at cellular and molecular levels, is now perceived as the new challenge of modern physiogenomics.

By Dr Nora Benhabilès, Director of Bioinformatics, and Professor Gérard Marguerie, Chief Scientific Officer, at CliniGenetics Dr Nora Benhabilès received her PhD in Molecular Biophysics from the University Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris VI). She worked in several leading European bioinformatics centres before joining CliniGenetics.
Dr Benhabilès is a recognised expert in molecular modelling, structural genomics and statistical methods, and has worked on protein folding, protein sequence analysis, protein structure prediction and molecular dynamics on DNA. In particular, she is active in setting up clustering methods and neural networks applied to post-genomics data. She is an adjunct Professor at the University of Paris teaching molecular modelling, bioinformatics and programming.

Professor Gérard Marguerie holds a PhD in Biophysics and Cell Biology. He is a former Director of Research at the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS). He then spent three years at the Scripps Clinic in San Diego and was appointed as Director of an INSERM unit in Haematology on returning to France.

Professor Marguerie then took a CEA (Atomic Energy Agency) appointment as Director of the Department of Structural and Molecular Biology at the Nuclear Centre of Research in Grenoble. He was also appointed as the Co-Director of the National Programme on Structural Biology. Professor Marguerie was a substitute Director of the Life Sciences Division of the Atomic Energy Agency, Head of a Functional Genomic Research Unit, and Professor at Evry University (Paris) in cellular biology.

Tightening Your Supply Chain Against Counterfeits

World Courier

As today’s global pharmaceutical supply chain grows increasingly longer and more complex, each link provides added opportunity for counterfeiters. While pending regulatory changes promise to tighten the supply chain with respect to production and distribution entities and new packaging technologies will make the identification of counterfeit products easier, the logistics of global distribution remains a weak link. How can the pharmaceutical shipper ensure the security of the supply chain over thousands of miles and extended periods of time when the product is no longer in his possession?
