About Company: Evozyne is harnessing Generative AI for the realms of therapeutic discovery and drug development.
The company stands committed to unfurling new horizons in the design of therapeutic proteins, thereby potentially accelerating the advent of novel therapeutics and reducing the timeline for treatment development.
Founded in the year 2020, Evozyne's journey saw a significant milestone earlier this year through a collaborative venture with NVIDIA.
This endeavor gave way to an AI model dedicated to the design of therapeutic proteins, setting the stage for a substantial augmentation in both the number and quality of synthetic protein designs. Such advancements open the floodgates to not only new therapeutic design but also a pronounced reduction in development time for new treatments.
