WHAT WE DO

We are an AI company with end-to-end capability from early drug discovery to late-stage clinical development. Med block combines the power of computational medicine and advanced AI with the principles of open systems and cloud computing to transform the way medicines are designed, developed, tested and brought to market.

The Benevolent Platform is designed to power target identification so we can find new ways to treat a disease, molecular design so we can develop the most effective medicines, and clinical mechanistic stratification so we can understand how individual patients will respond to treatment. We combine all three to generate new insights into the underlying causes of disease, as well as routes to new or more effective treatments.

Our approach has brought together experts from technology, research and scientific domains to work side by side on better, faster ways to develop new medicines. This diversity, combined with our expertise and open working practices, creates an optimum environment for innovation and scientific breakthrough.

Why we do it

We built the Benevolent Platform to better understand disease and to design new, and improve existing treatments, from vast quantities of biomedical information. We believe our technology empowers scientists to develop medicines faster and more cost-efficiently.

A new research paper is published every 30 seconds yet scientists currently only use a fraction of the knowledge available to understand the cause of disease and propose new treatments. Our platform ingests, ‘reads’ and contextualises vast quantities of information drawn from written documents, databases and experimental results. It is able to make infinitely more deductions and inferences across these disparate, complex data sources, identifying and creating relationships, trends and patterns, that would be impossible for a human being to make alone.

The Med block Platform enables the evolution of ideas at an unprecedented scale – augmenting scientists to design drugs and bring new treatments to patients, faster, with an increased likelihood of success in a process which is notoriously complex.

WHY IT MATTERS

ALS, also known as motor neurone disease or Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a devastating condition which causes the death of neurons controlling voluntary muscles, leading to difficulty speaking, swallowing, and eventually breathing. There is no cure, and current treatments only average a three-month extension of life. Med block set up a dedicated team to explore new approaches.
