Maple Grove, Minnesota--(Newsfile Corp. - January 11, 2021) - StemoniX, a biotech company changing how new drugs are discovered, announced today their participation at the 2021 Biotech Showcase being held January 11-15th as part of OrganAi, a joint venture between StemoniX and Atomwise. The company will present recent advancements in Central Nervous System (CNS) disorders during an on-demand presentation that is available 24/7 before and during the meeting to registered attendees.
OrganAi has created a novel drug discovery engine by combining a human-first neural organoid platform from StemoniX with AtomNet® technology by Atomwise for accelerated small molecule drug discovery. The company uses human iPSC-derived complex 3D neural cultures with AI-based screening methods to successfully identify novel small molecule therapeutics for debilitating diseases. While initially focused on CNS and rare neurodevelopmental disorders, the approach is disease and target agnostic and can easily expand into other diseases and organ systems. Together these capabilities promise to rapidly identify and advance novel disease targets and compounds with potential for clinical translation to treat CNS disorders and beyond.
"We're excited to start 2021 by attending the Biotech Showcase! It is the perfect place to promote the innovative venture between StemoniX and Atomwise - how together we will accelerate the progression of safer and more effective compounds through the drug discovery pipeline and ultimately identify additional partners to take these molecules into the clinic," stated Ping Yeh, CEO and Co-founder of StemoniX.
Biotech Showcase, produced by Demy-Colton and EBD Group, is an investor conference focused on driving advances in therapeutic development by providing a sophisticated networking platform for executives and investors that fosters investment and partnership opportunities. The conference takes place each year during the course of one of the industry's largest gatherings and busiest weeks.
"We are delighted that StemoniX will be representing OrganAi at the Biotech Showcase this year," said Sara Demy, CEO of Demy-Colton. "Biotech Showcase is a prime occasion for life science entrepreneurs and investors to come together to discover the potential of innovative technologies that will drive the future of drug discovery."
Interested parties are invited to contact Blake Anson (firstname.lastname@example.org), Vice President of Business Development for additional information on the platforms and opportunities.
