Our very own Brett Averso (CTO, EVQLV) was welcomed on the AI Podcast in 26.1 Minutes with hosts Brian Ray and Don Sheu. They discussed our work on COVID-19 with ImmunoPrecise, the benefits of a computational approach to antibody research and drug discovery, our progress as a company and a host of other topics.
EVQLV, has submitted their first panel of candidate therapeutic antibody sequences, comprised of DNA sequences encoding for potentially therapeutic antibodies against the new coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2. These DNA sequences were generated using computational antibody design, a method which combines mathematics, statistics, and computer science to identify high-affinity antibodies.
Talem Therapeutics, a subsidiary of ImmunoPrecise, and EVQLV announced a new collaboration aimed at accelerating the global effort to develop lead therapeutic and vaccine candidates against the SARS-CoV-2 virus (coronavirus).
