In 2008 Intomics was founded by leading scientists within the fields of bioinformatics and systems biology to accelerate and improve drug discovery and development through optimized utilization of biomedical data. Due to vast experience with a broad range of biomedical data types and a high success rate with disease related research, the founders were convinced that the pharmaceutical industry could benefit from their pioneering research.
Since our foundation, Intomics has helped clients from the pharmaceutical industry with a variety of projects involving bioinformatics and systems biology. Intomics’ services have expanded into new areas within Pharmaceutical Research & Development and Intomics has acquired in-depth knowledge in applying biomedical big data throughout the drug development value chain.
Our focus has always been on establishing close collaborations that fully exploit the synergy between our clients’ specific disease knowledge and our unique capabilities and technological solutions.
Mission and Vision
Our mission is to enable the pharmaceutical industry to develop new drug treatments more effectively by using integrative bioinformatics and systems biology technologies
Our vision is to become the leading and most advanced supplier of integrative bioinformatics and systems biology technologies to the pharmaceutical industry
