Life Science Database

NUVISAN’s Life Science Database (LSDB) is built on decades of pharma research. The chemically diverse and unique space of 3 million molecules in the LSDB is associated with experimental end points covering biological activity, physchem, drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics (DMPK) properties, and more. With our curated database and experience gained in working with it, we provide data-driven solutions that are tailored to the specific needs of your project.

At NUVISAN, we have a unique 3 million compound library (REF 1, 2) and more than a billion associated experimental data points that cover biological activity on a wide range of target classes, physchem, ADMET end points, and more. By leveraging the legacy data, we provide informed decisions through data mining and custom predictive tools for various stages of the drug discovery pipeline.

During all stages of a drug discovery process, using the information in the LSDB, we can provide the following:

Hit Identification Stage

Lead Optimization Stage

  • Data-driven SAR and scaffold hopping for optimization of efficacy, selectivity, and pharmacokinetic properties.

Preclinical Development Stage

  • Our prediction models trained on historical data are used for predicting ADME end points. For more details, see cheminformatics.

In addition, we offer custom services to curate and annotate your project data, ensuring a smooth transition of your project to NUVISAN. We use state-of-the-art tools and platforms for handling chemical structures and associated biological activity data to get maximum insight from them. NUVISAN offers data services with an aim of reducing the cost and time needed in each stage of drug development.
