Data Science-Driven Drug Discovery

Unleashing the power of AI to accelerate success

In the increasingly protracted, expensive and data-driven reality of drug discovery, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is redefining drug design.

Excelra’s smart AI/ML predictive engine harnesses high-throughput screening data, enabling the discovery of ideal drug candidates across any indication with high speed and accuracy. Engaged with a systems perspective, we are uniquely positioned to provide deep biological insights and accelerate drug development in a cost-effective manner.

Target Identification

Hitting the disease where it matters!

Discover safe and effective drug targets by employing our experimentally validated in silico pipelines that enable structure- or ligand-based target-id.

By annotating multiscale molecular interactions and causal disease pathways, we uncover unique disease-gene mechanistic associations to present novel target-centric therapeutic opportunities.

Target Dossier Services

Providing a panoramic view of the target

Target identification is an essential first step toward the discovery and development of any new therapeutic. It therefore becomes crucial to perform due diligence around a target of interest before embarking on the long, time-consuming, expensive and high-risk endeavour of drug development.

Excelra offers a custom service in providing a comprehensive target assessment dossier for global biotech and pharma companies. The dossier is a compendium of information on the complete target profile including structural, systemic and functional aspects of a protein and the gene-encoding it. By providing a 360-degree view of a target we help facilitate critical Go/No-go decision making.

360 Degree Target View:


Role in healthy tissues as well as its association with disease(s).


Molecular pharmacology, target expression across human tissues/organs, species, gene alterations and target interactions with other proteins/genes.


Competitive landscape of drug development by stage (approved, clinical & pre-clinical drugs)


Adverse events or toxicity data for compounds at any stage of development


On- and Off- target safety assessment and de-risking strategies

Chemistry Curation Services
