Author information

  • BioWisdom, Harston Mill, Harston, Cambridge, UK, CB2 5GG. steve.gardner@biowisdom.com


The increased generation of data in the pharmaceutical R&D process has failed to generate the expected returns in terms of enhanced productivity and pipelines. The inability of existing integration strategies to organize and apply the available knowledge to the range of real scientific and business issues is impacting on not only productivity but also transparency of information in crucial safety and regulatory applications. The new range of semantic technologies based on ontologies enables the proper integration of knowledge in a way that is reusable by several applications across businesses, from discovery to corporate affairs.
