BIOiSIM assigns ‘credit scores’ to drug candidates 

VeriSIM Life, a San Francisco-based startup, has created BIOiSIM, an AI-powered platform that simulates drug compound behavior in the human body by acting like a virtual laboratory. It assigns each a predictive “credit score” predicting its viability for drug development.

“It’s like a FICO score for drug development,” founder and CEO Dr. Jo Varshney said. BIOiSIM’s scoring system draws from an inferential search space of more than 1 billion drug-like compounds and capacity to model 800 billion total simulation scenarios powered by 10 billion deep learning neural network effects. The vast search space of drug-like compounds and data processing capabilities enable it to evaluate numerous factors such as its potency, selectivity, and safety profile to determine a drug’s overall likelihood of success.

BIOiSIM focuses on predictive insights

The considerable scale of data allows for a comprehensive analysis of drug compounds, bolstering the pr…
