About Simomics.

Based in York since 2014, Simomics is an ethics-led software technology SME, driven by a strong mission and purpose to promote corporate environmental responsibility, and the replacement, reduction, and refinement of the use of animals for scientific purposes through in-silico modelling.

We develop technologies to explore, communicate and maximise the value from computer based (in-silico) models to accelerate and de-risk R&D and support key environmental protection initiatives.

Combining world leading expertise in life science, software engineering and data science, we work with global clients and partners in the pharmaceutical, agrochemical, personal care and environmental industries.
