Participant 15: Brainwave-Discovery Ltd (SME) (BWD)

Edinburgh, UK
Prof. R Wayne Davies

BWD will provide contract services whereby proteins identified by the SynSys partners as potential disease candidates will be engineered in normal and/or variant form into the fly brain. They will then be profiled using an array of physiological, anatomical and behavioural tests. These technologies will provide a system whereby new candidates can be assessed very rapidly and cost-effectively (approx 5x faster and 5x cheaper than rodent models) yet sill providing real living brain information. This will reduce the overall animal use by the consortium.
