Findings in research on photoaging could reverse negative impact of ultraviolet radiation
Photoaging is a process that occurs when human skin is exposed to UV radiation from the sun that causes it to age at a faster rate than it would under normal circumstances. Though the process is known to occur how it works is not fully understood. InSilico Medicine's GeroscopeTM software provided insights into this process that could help to combat it. The research will be presented at Basel Life Science Week 2015.

Watching a tumor grow in real-time
The ability to visualize and characterize the composition of a tumor in detail during its development can provide valuable insights in order to target appropriate therapeutics. The polymer chemist Professor Dr. Prasad Shastri and the pharmacist Jon Christensen, in collaboration with the biomedical researcher Dr. Daniel Vonwil, from the University of Freiburg have visualized and quantified the growth and composition of breast tumors over time in a living animal. The researchers published their findings in a paper in the journal PLOS ONE.
