MATLAB and Simulink for Biotech and Pharmaceutical Consulting

Supporting pharmaceutical research and development with broad technical capability

MathWorks Consulting Services enable researchers and scientists in the biotech and pharmaceutical industry to streamline their data-driven workflows in areas like drug discovery and development, drug manufacturing, biostatistics, bioinformatics, and bioimage processing. MathWorks consultants have experience supporting many industries to inform novel outcomes for its biotech and pharmaceutical engagements, helping scientists use MATLAB® to develop custom software solutions that efficiently integrate into their computational workflows. Example projects include:

  • Leveraging existing legacy data to create high-accuracy predictive models
  • Manufacturing analytics and batch process optimization using real-time feedback on site data
  • Implementing pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamics (PK/PD) models and fitting model parameters to drug data
  • Developing pharmacological modeling apps and deploying them in the cloud
  • Supporting the development of specialized workflows for clinical and non-clinical high throughput biodistribution studies

Drug Discovery and Development

Biotech and pharmaceutical researchers engage MathWorks Consulting Services to create end-to-end workflows for drug discovery and development, from molecular simulation and protein structure to toxicity prediction through quantitative systems pharmacology and PK/PD modeling and simulation.

Solutions include dedicated radiology and pathology image labeling and analysis tools. Researchers work with MathWorks consultants to design, implement, and deploy projects on dose optimization, drug-drug interaction prediction, surrogate modeling, and sensitivity analysis while adhering to regulatory standards.


Regulatory Support

Biotech and pharmaceutical companies rely on MATLAB and Simulink products, which are compliant with regulations in North America, Europe, and Asia. These products support GMP, GLP, GLM, and FDA compliant studies with regulatory workflows and HIPAA compliant data management. The development of IEC 62304-compliant embedded software is supported for FDA/CE regulatory compliance. MathWorks Consulting Services develop and review analysis tools for 21 CFR Part 11 compliance and supported validation activities.
