Science in the Age of Experience: Science in Life

Science for Better Living

The definition of biosphere is quite broad in its entirety and pretty daunting. The earth’s biosphere is the ecosystem comprising the entire earth—its crust, waters, atmosphere and the living organisms that inhabit it—that supports life. That pretty much means us and everything around us; and that’s the scope of science aimed at better living, looking to generate knowledge and contribute to health and prosperity in a better world.

Modelling the Biosphere

Collaborative innovation is pushing the boundaries of science to improve life, and it’s not just in one discipline. New technologies and experiences make accurate predictions that accelerate innovation in the design of new substances with predefined properties for next generation materials. New techniques in one area depend on knowledge in another—for example, advancements in brain imaging depend on progress in chemistry and physics; analyzing the vast quantity of new genomics data requires advancing information science.

The Dassault Systèmes brand BIOVIA is at the heart of providing a scientific collaborative environment for modelling the biosphere and the area of Life Sciences. With Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform, it encompasses advanced biological, chemical and materials experiences that support multiple science-based industries like pharma and biotech, and also others that might not be so obvious, like aerospace and defense, consumer packaged goods, energy and materials, high tech, industrial equipment and even transportation.

Advancing Personalized Medicine

Organizations are leveraging the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform as a game changer collaborative environment empowering their business and people to innovate in an entirely new way. Through the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, pharmaceutical companies simulate the effect of drugs on different genomes and tumor propagation to help identify more effective approaches based on genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors for personalized precision medicine. 3D-printed anatomical models help surgeons prepare for complex and difficult surgeries using a patient’s unique biology, and combining 3D models with real-world medical data helps medical device companies in guiding new medical device designs.

Dassault Systèmes’ Living Heart Project created the first-ever 3D model of a beating human heart, enabling cutting-edge cardiovascular innovations and personalized treatments for heart disease. In addition, simulation training with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform allows health professionals to perform virtual interventions and simulate results.
