Current Projects

  • ­eTRANSAFE - "Enhancing TRANslational SAFEty Assessment through Integrative Knowledge Management":
    • Based on previous experience, the eTRANSAFE project proposes a state-of-the-art, powerful and flexible technical architecture for the data sharing, integration and exploitation.

  • ­TransQST - "Translational quantitative systems toxicology to improve the understanding of the safety of medicines":
    • The focus of the TransQST project will be to provide innovative methodologies and software tools for systems toxicology modelling.

  • EU-ToxRisk - "An Integrated European 'Flagship' Program Driving Mechanism-based Toxicity Testing and Risk Assessment for the 21st Century":
    • toxicological assessment based on human cell responses and a comprehensive mechanistic understanding of cause-consequence relationships of chemical adverse effects.

  • ­Open PHACTS - "Open Pharmacological Concepts Triple Store":
    • The Open PHACTS consortium will reduce the barriers to drug discovery by applying semantic technologies to available data resources, creating an Open Pharmacological Space.­­­­­­­­­­

  • eTOX - "A better prediction of toxic effects of new drug candidates":
    • Integrating bioinformatics and chemoinformatics approaches for the development of expert systems allowing the in silico prediction of toxicities.

  • K4DD - "Kinetics for Drug Discovery":
    • The goal of the K4DD project is to improve our understanding of how potential drugs bind with their target, and develop methods and tools to allow researchers to study drug-target interactions with greater ease.

  • SFB35 - "Transmembrane Transporters in Health and Disease":
    • Sonderforschungsbereich (research cluster) funded by the Austrian Science Fund.

  • MolTag - "Molecular Drug Targets":
    • a PhD/doctoral program in pharmaceutical sciences, funded by the Austrian Science Fund.

  • EUROPIN - "A European Pharmacoinformatics Initiative":
    • Developing a European PhD curriculum in Pharmacoinformatics

  • OATPs - "FWF Stand-Alone Project":
    • Elucidating hepatic OATP-ligand interactions and selectivity

  • FAIRness - "for Life Science Data in Austria"
    • FAIR principles for data (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reuseable)
