    People seek out health info when famous person dies

    WEDNESDAY, April 23, 2014 (HealthDay News) -- The deaths of well-known people offer an opportunity to educate the general public about disease detection and prevention, a new study suggests. Researchers surveyed 1,400 American men and women after Apple co-founder Steve Jobs died of pancreatic cancer in 2011 and learned that more than one-third of them sought information about his cause of death or information about cancer in general soon after his death was reported.

"When we hear about crimes committed by people with mental illness, they tend to be big headline-making crimes, so they get stuck in people's heads," said study author Jillian Peterson, a psychology professor at Normandale Community College in Bloomington, Minn.

SAN CARLOS, Calif., Feb. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Rosa & Co. LLC, a drug development advisory firm with expertise in drug-disease modeling and simulation research, today announced that Dr. Ron D. Beaver, Ph.D., CEO will present a webinar entitled "Systems Pharmacology: Science or Non-Science? And so what?" in Rosa's "Impact of Modeling & Simulation in Drug Development" Webinar series on February 27th, 2014 at 1:00 pm EST (GMT -5:00).

The biopharmaceutical industry has slowly adopted drug-disease modeling and simulation (M&S) over the past two decades; nevertheless, as a whole, the industry continues to view M&S as an optional activity, peripheral to the mainstream scientific activity of drug development. This view is largely due to the implicit belief that M&S is something other than science.  This webinar will explore the question of whether quantitative systems pharmacology, a powerful M&S approach, is, in fact, "scientific," and the implications of the answer for scientific progress, organizational design, and M&S adoption. To illustrate the concepts, two diverse applications of systems pharmacology will be presented.

The purpose of the series, "Impact of Modeling & Simulation in Drug Development," is to foster the use of M&S activities in biotechnology, pharmaceutics, and other life science industries. This series is geared to illustrate the advantages and applicability of M&S in product discovery, development, and marketing programs.

Register for this free Webinar. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about how to join the webinar. More information about the Webinar series may be found at http://www.rosaandco.com/webinar.html.
