(eTRANSAFE) Enhacing TRANslational SAFEty Assessment through Integrative Knowledge Management

Project summary

The eTRANSAFE project will develop a powerful data integration infrastructure and a collection of computational tools for making optimal use of these data. The proposed system will be a flexible and expandable framework, built on previous experience and applying state-of-the-art methods and technologies for providing the most advanced solutions for data sharing, interoperability and exploitation. The project will develop in silico tools for data mining, visualisation, and prediction of potential toxicity, with specific attention to the assessment of the preclinical to clinical predictivity and the discovery of safety biomarkers. The CDISC-SEND format will be supported, facilitating the preparation of regulatory-compliant documentation. This infrastructure will be underpinned by development of open standards and guidelines recognised by regulatory agencies and international organisations.


The eTRANSAFE project works to improve the efficiency of translational safety assessment approaches during the medicines discovery pipeline.
