On this episode of the Artificial Intelligence in Drug Discovery podcast, I speak with Tim Guilliams and David Brown of Healx. Healx uses artificial intelligence to repurpose existing drugs for rare diseases. They have created a knowledge graph of relevant public and proprietary data, which they use to predict novel disease-drug relationships. They claim their approach can bring new treatments to patients 80% faster and 90% cheaper than traditional approaches.
Listen now to learn how rare diseases are surprisingly common, why drug repurposing holds so much promise to treat them, and how Healx uses AI to do it. And you will, I hope, be inspired by a powerful example of AI's potential in healthcare:
