The ability of AI platforms to comb through large and often complex databases using big data analytics is one that many companies are keen to take advantage of for drug discovery. BeneloventAI is one of many AI companies drawing the attention of the industry; its AI platform makes sense of biomedical data via computational and experimental technologies, and the company has become well-recognized for its partnerships with key industry players.

Though the experience was amazing and I learned a great deal from it, I jumped at the opportunity to work for Texere. I'm excited to see where this new journey takes me!
