John DiBella, Simulations Plus division president, stated: “Simulations Plus has been a staunch supporter of academic research training and collaborations for over two decades to advance the science of Modeling and Simulation (M&S). The goal of the new University+ Program is to increase M&S education and publications that will promote the next generation of scientists by setting them up today for success tomorrow. By providing accredited universities with free access to the Simulations Plus portfolio of software, we will be able to drive M&S learning and understanding prior to entering the workforce. This program will prepare future scientists for numerous opportunities, including participation in our Internship+ Program to gain further hands-on experience with industry leading M&S tools, funded postdoc opportunities with our company, or full-time employment careers where they can apply model informed drug development (MIDD) skills and methods with Simulations Plus, industry, academia, or government agencies.”
