The future of drug design

RECEPTOR.AI provides an end-to-end small molecule drug discovery platform for precision and personalised medicine to achieve ultimate selectivity between highly similar off-target proteins.

Our mission
RECEPTOR.AI's mission is to create superior drugs, which are safe, efficient and successful in clinical trials by developing a next generation drug discovery platform based on the synergy of AI, computational chemistry and biology.

We aim to improve access to AI drug discovery via our AI platform which is integrated with wet labs to make the drug discovery process more efficient.
Our vision
We dream about a world where new drugs are developed so fast, that new diseases have no chances to spread.

We envision radical minimization of drug testing on animals and humans with improvement of their safety and efficiency by combining advanced AI with novel biomimetic technologies.
Our team
The Receptor.AI team comprises over 20 experts in the fields of AI, computational chemistry, and biology, bringing together a diverse range of scientific backgrounds and a wealth of industry experience.
