Target discovery

Data driven approach to
target discovery

Discovery of new therapeutic targets is essential to the development of new medicine. The identification of key disease-modifying targets lays the foundation for any successful drug discovery.

Our streaMLine preDict platform has a scientific and data driven approach and is designed to identify novel targets that are drugable, clinically efficacious and safe.

Our in-house capabilities enable rapid validation of targets in clinical translatable in vivo models.

streaMLine for target identification and validation

Our target discovery platform, streaMLine preDict, combines vast amounts of preclinical data to identify novel druggable targets. We apply advanced analytical methods such as RNAseq, scRNAseq, AI assisted histopathology and various biochemical assays on samples from Gubra´s industry golden standard rodent disease models.

Our preDict algorithm identifies and ranks targets based on unique in-house developed algorithms. Evaluation of clinical data is included to ensure human translatability of targets.
