Business Overview

Atomwise is revolutionizing how drugs are discovered with AI. We invented the use of deep learning for structure-based drug discovery, today developing a pipeline of small-molecule drug candidates advancing into preclinical studies.

Our AtomNetĀ® technology has been used to unlock more undruggable targets than any other AI drug discovery platform. We are tackling over 600 unique disease targets across 775 collaborations spanning more than 250 partners around the world.

Our portfolio of joint ventures and partnerships with leading pharmaceutical, agrochemical, and emerging biotechnology companies represents a collective deal value approaching $7 billion.

To date, Atomwise has raised over $174 million from leading venture capital firms to advance our mission to make better medicines, faster.

SARS-COV-2 has roused the scientific community with a call to action to combat the growing pandemic. At the time of this writing, there are as yet no novel antiviral agents or approved vaccines available for deployment as a frontline defense. Understanding the pathobiology of COVID-19 could aid scientists in their...
Driven by rapid advances in computer hardware and publicly available datasets over the past decade, deep learning has achieved tremendous success in the transformation of many computational disciplines. These novel technologies have had considerable impact on computer-aided drug design as well, throughout all stages of the development pipeline. A flexible...
Background: Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) is one of the most economically devastating diseases affecting the pork industry globally. PRRS is caused by PRRS virus (PRRSV). Currently there are no effective treatments against this swine disease. Methods: Through artificial intelligence molecular screening, we obtained a set of small molecule...
