Drug development is an extremely expensive endeavor, in large part because of the 96% failure rate of clinical drug trials. However, the new frontier of medicine has arrived, and Sean McClain and Joshua Meier (respectively the Founder/CEO and Chief Artificial Intelligence (AI) Officer of Absci) are leading the charge. Absci is a public company harnessing generative AI to create more effective medicines faster and less expensively. During this episode, Sean and Joshua explain how their pooled approach to antibody production works, why they focus so heavily on data, the metrics they use to evaluate their models, and why they are certain that personalized medicine is going to be a reality in the future. There are countless possible mashups of AI and drug discovery, and Absci attempts to bring an innovative approach to biologics to positively impact human health!
