HTUO Biosciences is dedicated to making the drug development process cheaper and faster by changing the way we use molecular simulations. The science behind molecular modelling is nearly 40 years old and hasn't changed much. We no longer use mainframes, but the software is still the same.
Our goal is to create simulations that accurately reflect the behaviour of water and its interactions with other molecules, to better understand what's happening inside cells, on membrane surfaces and in the test tube.
“Well-known examples [...] prove that careful examination of water molecules and their energetics can contribute significantly to a successful drug design campaign.”
