How AI Is Applied To Metabolomics To Identify New Targets And Drugs

The team at MIT created the most comprehensive database of metabolites, their interactions with proteins, protein-protein interactions, drug-protein interactions, and associations of metabolites with diseases. They then use the obtained interactions map to make inferences about the disease mechanisms and novel targets. With this new technology, the team launched a biotech startup ReviveMed in 2016 having raised $1.5M of funding so far.

Artificial Intelligence For Drug Discovery Use Cases At Mind the Byte

Artificial intelligence (AI) has become a hot topic in the biopharmaceutical environment and nearly every pharma company in the world has embraced it hoping that it will play a major role in speeding up drug discovery, by reducing R&D costs and avoiding failure in late development stages. According to prospects, AI-driven drug discovery will lead to the development of new and more effective drugs, paving thus the way to personalized medicine.

Top 7 Trends In Pharmaceutical Research In 2018

Being under ever-increasing pressure to compete in a challenging economic and technological environment, pharmaceutical and biotech companies must continually innovate in their R&D programmes to stay ahead of the game.

External innovations come in different forms and originate in different places -- from university labs, to privately held venture capital-backed startups and contract research organizations (CROs). Let’s get to reviewing some of the most influential research trends which will be “hot” in 2018 and beyond, and summarize some of the key players driving innovations.

Applying Artificial Intelligence And Bioinformatics To Create “Instagram” Of Immune System

Nowadays, the brightest innovations usually happen at the intersection of different disciplines and technologies. A recent scientific achievement by Dr. Carsten Krieg, a researcher at Hollings Cancer Center (HCC), Medical University of South Carolina, is not an exception to this observation.
With an ambitious goal in mind to advance the field of cancer immunotherapy, Dr. Krieg combines a very powerful analytical technique -- mass cytometry, with artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and bioinformatics tools to visualize the obtained experimental data and have a bird’s-eye view of the immune system.

(Last updated: 15.03.2018)

The idea of using artificial intelligence (AI) to accelerate drug discovery process and boost a success rate of pharmaceutical research programs has inspired a notable amount of activity over the last several years with a considerable number of initiated research collaborations between AI-driven R&D vendors and top pharmaceutical companies in 2016-2017.

(For a detailed review of the topic, read Biopharma’s Hunt For Artificial Intelligence: Who Does What?).

A busy beginning of 2018 shows that the area is getting even “hotter” and things start unfolding faster in the emerging “AI for drug discovery” space. Below is a brief summary of some of the most notable events of this year so far:
