STALICLA Awarded EUR 1.7 Million to Lead Computational Drug Repositioning Activities in EU-funded REPO4EU Project
REPO4EU consortium seeks to address the urgent need for new cost-effective therapies, as well as to improve existing treatments through international cooperation, pooling research and innovation expertise. A total of EUR 22 million grant has been awarded to REPO4EU by EU (HORIZON-HLTH-DISEASE-2021-04-02) within the Key Strategic Orientation KSO-D ‘Creating a more resilient, inclusive and democratic European society’ of Horizon Europe’s Strategic Plan 2021-2024. REPO4EU is one of the only two projects retained among 13 full consortium applications. STALICLA DDS was granted a EUR 1.7 million budget over 6 years to act as leader for in silico drug repositioning work tasks. STALICLA DDS will bring its technology and know-how to analyze biosample and clinical data from hundreds of patients with neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs).
Lynn DURHAM, STALICLA’s CEO stated that “STALICLA is thrilled to be leading the REPO4EU in silico drug repositioning work task project. This achievement is a strong acknowledgement of STALICLA’s technology and expertise in accelerating precision medicine discovery for patients with complex diseases.”
It takes on average 15 years for promising drug candidates to reach the market. Repositioning investigational medicinal products beyond their original pursued indication is an efficient strategy to reduce timelines, costs and attrition in drug development. STALICLA will contribute to REPO4EU its unique know-how of in silico systems biology and artificial intelligence applications for patient stratification and treatment identification.
