SAN CARLOS, Calif., Feb. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Rosa & Co. LLC, a drug development advisory firm with expertise in drug-disease modeling and simulation research, today announced that Dr. Ron D. Beaver, Ph.D., CEO will present a webinar entitled "Systems Pharmacology: Science or Non-Science? And so what?" in Rosa's "Impact of Modeling & Simulation in Drug Development" Webinar series on February 27th, 2014 at 1:00 pm EST (GMT -5:00).

The biopharmaceutical industry has slowly adopted drug-disease modeling and simulation (M&S) over the past two decades; nevertheless, as a whole, the industry continues to view M&S as an optional activity, peripheral to the mainstream scientific activity of drug development. This view is largely due to the implicit belief that M&S is something other than science.  This webinar will explore the question of whether quantitative systems pharmacology, a powerful M&S approach, is, in fact, "scientific," and the implications of the answer for scientific progress, organizational design, and M&S adoption. To illustrate the concepts, two diverse applications of systems pharmacology will be presented.

The purpose of the series, "Impact of Modeling & Simulation in Drug Development," is to foster the use of M&S activities in biotechnology, pharmaceutics, and other life science industries. This series is geared to illustrate the advantages and applicability of M&S in product discovery, development, and marketing programs.
