Catalyzing Drug Discovery with AI and Scaled Chemical Libraries with a Cayer

In this podcast, Axial VC founder Joshua Elkington talks with Devon Cayer, 1859’s cofounder and company leader, about Devon’s inspirations, motivations, and innovations that set his trajectory as an entrepreneur and Founder of 1859. The underlying technology of 1859 relies on Devon’s and his co-founders’ expertise in combinatorial library preparation, pico-scale activity-based screening to create SAR models for each compound, and machine learning of iterative screens of titrated compounds to predict the best leads.
