“Software solutions based on scientific breakthroughs to reduce the cost and increase the success rate of new drugs development”
Advanced algorithms in user-friendly tools
Lixoft products are designed to save the time and energy of pharmacometricians and biostatisticians. Lixoft brings breakthrough advances to the modeling & simulation community in user-friendly tools. Lixoft products are also designed to break the preclinical/clinical/vigilance divides for modelling and simulation, and allow all stages of drug development to share informations and synthesize them in common studies.
One of the most widely used platform.
Reproducible research and knowledge sharing require the use of common tools, libraries and languages by the academia, industry and regulation agencies. The Lixoft products are also designed for academic research scientists and students, as well as regulation agencies, and provide a perfect support for courses in PKPD and model-based drug development. Lixoft strongly encourages the use of its products for teaching purposes. Please contact us so we can help.
Perpetual innovations in statistics and mathematics
Lixoft maintains a close research partnership with Inria. This collaboration guarantees the most effective organization for rapid technology transfer from academic research to industry-grade software.
Lixoft was founded in 2011, after a seven years research program in statistics and modeling for drug development and clinical trials, led by Inria in collaboration with Inserm and sponsored by Johnson & Johnson, Sanofi, Novartis, Roche, Astrazeneca and Exprimo.
Lixoft was self-funded and constantly growing. On April 1st 2020, Lixoft joined the Simulations Plus family.
Its R&D team includes software developers, statisticians, mathematicians and pharmacologists.
Dr Pauline Traynard joined Lixoft in 2017 as Applications Manager. She has a multidisciplinary background focusing on computational and systems biology. After a double engineering degree specializing in computational biology from Ecole Polytechnique and MINES ParisTech (Paris, France) obtained in 2012, she applied different mathematical formalisms to model biological rhythms as part of her PhD studies at INRIA and IBENS Paris, and prostate cancer as a postdoctoral fellow in Institut Curie.
Dr Monika Twarogowska joined Lixoft in 2019 as Applications Manager. She has multidisciplinary knowledge, confirmed by a double master degree – in Applied Physics (Gdańsk University of Technology, Poland) and in Mathematical Engineering (University of L’Aquila, Italy) – and Ph.D in Applied Mathematics (University of L’Aquila, Italy), and academic research experience in mathematical modelling in biology, simulations and programming gained in Inria-Sophia Antipolis, Ens-Lyon and CNR-Rome. Her results are focused, on one side, on modelling biological phenomena ranging from formation of stem cells clusters and tumour growth to intracellular movements of molecules and gene expression patterns, and on the other side, on quantitative analysis and development of simulation tools.
Frano Mihaljevic is an application manager at Lixoft. After earning his master’s degree in Pharmacy from University of Zagreb, Croatia, he gained experience as analytical researcher in research and development department of Teva Pharmaceuticals, where he was mostly focused on biorelevant in vitro release method and in vitro-in vivo correlation model development. He joined Lixoft in 2022.
Stephanie Kollmann is an application manager at Lixoft. She earned her master’s degree in Mathematics from University of Innsbruck, Austria. She worked several years as a biostatistician in clinical research at Assign DMB in Innsbruck, Austria, and then as a biostatistician consultant at L’Oréal in Paris, France. Throughout the years she mainly focused on planning and conducting statistical analyses and models in the pharma and cosmetic industries. She joined Lixoft in 2023.
