Schrödinger Announces Expanded Collaboration with AstraZeneca to Extend Computational Modeling Solutions to Biologics
The multi-year agreement extends an existing collaboration in which AstraZeneca is deploying Schrödinger’s computational platform to advance small molecule drug discovery efforts. The new collaboration is aimed at enhancing Schrödinger’s Free Energy Perturbation (FEP+) technology for the optimization of key properties of biologics, such as affinity and selectivity, with particular focus on binding affinity.
“This expansion of our collaboration with AstraZeneca has the potential to transform biologics research by further extending the power of physics-based computational modeling to the design of antibodies and protein therapeutics. It’s an exciting collaboration that underscores our commitment to continue investing in research to extend the reach of our industry-leading platform,” said
Schrödinger’s industry-leading computational platform to accelerate drug discovery and materials design is deployed by leading biopharmaceutical and industrial companies, academic institutions and government laboratories worldwide. Schrödinger is also applying its computational platform to a diverse and extensive pipeline of drug discovery programs in collaboration with pharmaceutical companies and has co-founded leading biotech companies. In addition, Schrödinger is using its platform to advance a pipeline of internal, wholly-owned drug discovery programs.
