NeuroInitiative (NI) is a small, fast-growing independent group based in sunny Jacksonville, FL and focused on pathway simulation of biochemical events within neurons. We are very passionate about our mission, which is to empower discoveries that improve human life and are looking for likeminded and ambitious individuals. The current projects focus on pathways involved in Parkinson’s disease, with future direction towards Alzheimer’s pathways. The group is composed of software engineers who design, develop and maintain the pathway simulation software (SEED) and biologists with a strong bench background who understand experimental design, hypothesis testing and the challenges of traditional bench work. The purpose of this software is to enable bench scientists to create in silico models of disease, test therapeutics and perform experiments using the simulation software before they experiment in the laboratory.
