Company Introduction

PharmCADD is a company motivated to accelerate the drug discovery process that designs a drug without building and maintaining huge infrastructure associated with high-performance computational resources. 
Our platform is built for both design and discovery and is powered by state-of-the-art technologies e.g., AI (Artificial intelligence), ML (Machine Learning), DL (Deep Learning), Molecular Dynamics (MD) and QM/MM simulation.

AI, which is data-derived technology emerges as a new trend that could potentially be very revolutionary in the modern world. 
It enables users to accelerate the search for a certain or specific drug candidate in the vast existence of virtual chemical space. 
Also, MD and quantum calculation, physics-based technologies, it enables users to characterize potential drug candidates more accurately. 
The effective combination of the data-derived and physics-based technologies leads to more accurate and speedier the drug discovery process.
