POLARISqb has entered a research collaboration addressing therapeutics for neglected diseases disproportionately affecting women.
The partnership seeks to discover treatments that may tackle many such diseases, and their complementary expertise promises to seek solutions that elude medical research. Auransa is an AI-driven biotech company, with a pipeline of novel compounds for various diseases. Auransa's proprietary predictive computational platform, SMarTR™ Engine, uses computational approaches to tackle disease heterogeneity to predict targets and compounds, generating insights from molecular data. POLARISqb built the first drug discovery platform using quantum computing, making the process ten times faster. POLARISqb's TachyonTM platform scans billions of molecules from a massive chemical space, finding novel molecular drugs.
Auransa is an artificial intelligence (AI)-driven pharmaceutical company developing precision medicines in areas of significant unmet need. They are working to redefine medicine, combining a sophisticated, proprietary and predictive computational platform with traditional pharmaceutical experience. The company’s SMarTR™ Engine has proprietary machine learning, advanced analytics and mathematics in an AI framework to generate insights from molecular data for a deep understanding of disease biology and patient subtypes. Auransa has successfully generated a broad pipeline of drug candidates addressing cancer, auto-immune, infectious and metabolic diseases advancing toward investigational new drug (IND) filings.

"We are excited about collaborating with Polaris to undertake a neglected area in the pharmaceutical industry. As women CEOs, we've joined forces to tackle female diseases like endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome, triple negative breast cancer or ovarian cancer. Together, I believe that we will be able to combine our expertise in biology and chemistry to generate quality solutions for hard to tackle or neglected diseases affecting women's health."
