NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The Institute for Systems Biology said today that it will collaborate with consumer health products giant Procter & Gamble on research to characterize the systems biology of various skin conditions.
The collaboration will leverage ISB's expertise in regulatory network inference and modeling and P&G's expertise in skin biology and dermatology to characterize and develop models of the global molecular changes that occur in skin under different conditions. The partners believe the research will benefit both of their interests: ISB's in skin diseases, such as skin cancer, and P&G's in skin care.
The collaboration will include work on the systems biology of respiratory rhinovirus infection.
Further details of the alliance were not disclosed.
