Lowering Barriers to R&D Innovation
We are a global, not-for-profit alliance of life science companies, vendors, publishers, and academic groups that work together to lower barriers to innovation in R&D.
Our projects transform R&D innovation through pre-competitive collaboration. We bring together the key constituents to identify the root causes that lead to R&D inefficiencies. We develop best practices and technology pilots to overcome common obstacles.
Our members collaborate as equals on open projects that generate significant value for the worldwide life sciences community.
With the launch of our Interactive Project Portfolio Platform (IP3) we are embracing a new level of openness, access, and transparency around our idea-to-project process. The platform is open to the public to submit new ideas, comment and vote on proposed ideas, and monitor the progress of our projects.
At the Pistoia Alliance we are continuing our growth with the arrival of a number of new members in the first quarter of 2016.
The Pistoia Alliance and quattro research GmbH are pleased to announce the release of a major new extension to the HELM notation standard and toolkit. The new functionality enables HELM to support the representation of biomolecules with some structural uncertainty or ambiguity.
