Prof Charlotte Deane has joined Exscientia as Chief Scientist of Biologics AI. In this newly created role, she will focus on the application of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and the design of protein structures in the discovery and development of novel drug candidates.
She will be splitting her time there with her academic role. Her appointment will strengthen the Department’s links with industry.
“I’m thrilled to join Exscientia and be part of the mission to revolutionise how new therapeutics are developed. I firmly believe that AI-led strategies are vital to improving all aspects of the process, and we’ve likely only just seen the beginning of how AI can transform conventional drug discovery and development. I look forward to exploring new frontiers where we can apply this innovation to ultimately bring better medicines to patients, faster.”
