The drug targets were selected from a list identified as part of Poolbeg’s artificial intelligence-led programme, which identified the potential treatments in only 10 months. The company’s scientific experts reviewed the data provided by a lab-based analysis of the potential drug treatments and chose the priority drug candidates.
