ProSanos and Management Science Associates Forge Alliance

NEW YORK, June 21 – ProsSanos and Management Science Associates have entered into a strategic relationship to develop and market biomedical informatics, the companies said Thursday.

Financial details of the collaboration were not disclosed.

As a first step in this alliance, the companies have already built a joint data center to address security issues and biomedical data integrity standards.

La Jolla, Calif.-based ProSanos, formerly called GenMatics, incorporates clinical outcomes information with molecular data in disease models. Management Science Associates of Pittsburgh, through its medical division, develops analytical software and data management to collect, annotate, analyze, and store clinical and molecular data.

“MSA is an ideal partner for us, with its expertise in data modeling, its world-class data centers, and its track record in both the governmental and commercial marketplaces,” Jonathan Morris, CEO of ProSanos, said in a statement.
