“Related Sciences takes a unique systematic approach to discovering valuable new medicines for unmet patient needs, focusing on the combination of AI/ML, team science, and an efficient R&D operating model to advance the drug discovery programs with the best chances of success,” said RS Senior Advisor, Dr. Jeffrey Bluestone.
