BAYER AND EXSCIENTIA COLLABORATE TO LEVERAGE THE POTENTIAL OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IN CARDIOVASCULAR AND ONCOLOGY DRUG DISCOVERY
Exscientia, the leading Artificial Intelligence (AI)-driven drug discovery company, announced today that it has entered a collaboration with Bayer AG that aims to accelerate the discovery of small molecule drugs focused on cardiovascular disease and oncology.
Under terms of the agreement, Exscientia will initially work on three projects with targets agreed between both parties. Exscientia may be eligible to receive up to
"We are driving forward digital transformation in R&D as we believe that digital technologies such as AI can simplify and speed up the discovery and development of new drugs for patients. The collaboration with Exscientia is expected to help us to achieve project milestones earlier and at the same time accelerate timelines by enabling more precise identification of suitable drug targets and lead structures."
As part of this collaboration, Exscientia will apply its Centaur Chemist™ Artificial Intelligence (AI) drug discovery platform to go beyond conventional human endeavour by using its evolutionary computing and deep learning algorithms to discover and optimise novel drug candidates at unprecedented productivity.

NOTES FOR EDITORS
Exscientia is at the forefront of Artificial Intelligence (AI)-driven drug discovery and design. By fusing the power of AI with the discovery experience of seasoned drug hunters, Exscientia is the first company to automate drug design, surpassing conventional approaches.
Exscientia's innovative Centaur Chemist™ platform enables breakthrough productivity gains as well as new approaches to improve drug efficacy. Novel compounds are automatically designed and prioritised for synthesis by its AI systems, which rapidly evolve compounds towards the desired candidate criteria for clinical development.
Exscientia systems learn from both existing data resources and experimental data from each design cycle. The principle is similar to how a human would learn, but the AI process is far more effective at identifying and assimilating multiple subtle and complex trends to balance potency, selectivity and pharmacokinetic criteria.
As a result, the AI-driven process is more likely to achieve the end goal and to do this more rapidly and efficiently than traditional human endeavour.
Exscientia is collaborating with several leading pharmaceutical and life sciences companies, has its headquarters in
The Group looks to build and grow a portfolio of equity stakes and licence income by taking an active involvement in spin-out companies, including support for fund raising and collaboration with relevant industry partners at an early stage of development.
