Simulations Plus, Inc. (NASDAQ: SLP), a leading provider of simulation and modeling software for pharmaceutical discovery and development, today announced that the U.S. Army Edgewood Chemical Biological Center (ECBC) Operational Toxicology Department has joined its ever-growing customer base.
John DiBella, vice president for marketing and sales of Simulations Plus, said: “We’ve been working to penetrate the environmental toxicology field for several years, and this is one of the most satisfying results of our efforts. After sending its Study Director to attend our Introductory GastroPlus™ Simulation and Modeling Workshop in March, the Operational Toxicology Department at the ECBC has procured multiple licenses for GastroPlus™, ADMET Predictor™, and MedChem Studio™ for use in their research.”
Mr. DiBella added: “According to its website, the U. S. Army Edgewood Chemical Biological Center is ‘. . . the nation’s principal research and development resource for non-medical chemical and biological (CB) defense. As a critical national asset in the CB defense community, ECBC supports all phases of the acquisition life-cycle ― from basic and applied research through technology development, engineering design, equipment evaluation, product support, sustainment, field operations and demilitarization ― to address its customers’ unique requirements.’ Needless to say, we are pleased to provide additional resources to this important national security effort.”
