AI for longevity: Insilico Medicine, SRW Laboratories to apply tech for new nutraceutical products

Artificial intelligence (AI) drug discovery specialists Insilico Medicine is working with New Zealand outfit SRW Laboratories in developing new longevity nutraceutical products.

The first project of the partnership will focus on developing next-generation anti-ageing and longevity nutraceuticals.

The process could be broken down into two parts: 1) using the platform to identify different mechanisms and pathways associated with ageing-related diseases and then 2) assessing how different compounds could affect the pathways through cell model experiments.
