"The Cambridge-MIT Institute (CMI) is hoping to speed up the discovery of new drugs for complex diseases such as cancer, diabetes and arthritis by launching an initiative to bring together scientific and IT professionals so they can share their knowledge and collaborate on next-generation drug research."
"The Community is aimed at taking a new multidisciplinary "systems biology" approach to drug discovery that will allow it to quickly conduct experiments on multiple gene and protein properties and perform computer analysis of data. The computation models they use will help the Community predict which drugs, dosages and treatments will be the most effective for certain types of patients, spurring the development of more personalized medicine, the group said."

"Around £65 million of public money has been pumped into the joint initiative with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, set up by Chancellor Gordon Brown to produce ideas to boost British business."
"“Up to half of the money is being given to MIT – one of the best-endowed universities in the world. That money is British taxpayers’ money.”"
“Bioinformatics will be at the core of biology in the 21st century. In fields ranging from structural biology to genomics to biomedical imaging, ready access to data and analytical tools are fundamentally changing the way investigators in the life sciences conduct research and approach problems. Complex, computationally intensive biological problems are now being addressed and promise to significantly advance our understanding of biology and medicine. No biological discipline will be unaffected by these technological breakthroughs.”BIOINFORMATICS IN THE 21st CENTURY
