What We DoWe at MedWorks Medicine by Design provide an online collaborativeplatform through which we engage students, the public, and medicalresearchers (innovation partners) in learning about and designing medicinecomputationally. We then process the information which is generated anduse it to sell innovative and actionable knowledge to medicine makers(customers) which decreases their cost of making medicine by an average of20%. Due to these cost savings, our methods lower the barriers involved ingetting medicine to those who need it (beneficiaries).

Within a cell, communication occurs between the control center of the cell andthe rest of the cell, facilitated by large molecules known as proteins. Whenthese proteins fail, miscommunication occurs and may lead to diseases such ascancer. The goal of our customers is to make a small and unique molecule,known as a ligand, which interacts with the protein in a very dynamic andspecific way, like a lock and key, in order to prevent this miscommunication.Understanding these interactions is crucial to finding and improving medicine.

The Problem: The Blind Search

2) Build

+

1) Guess ?3)Test

Currently, our customers face a drug development process which is fraught withtrial and error. They assemble ligands from “chemical parts”, much likeassembling Lego® pieces into a unique structure, in their quest to find the oneligand which has just the right structure and properties to specifically interactwith the protein target. There is a huge number of possible ligands (about 1060).The underlying problem is that our customers can’t “see” how any one ligandinteracts with the protein target. This means that they are limited to guessingabout which ligands to assemble and little is learned once they test theseligands, resulting in a “blind” search and the fact that, on average, to make onedrug costs our customers $1.8 billion, has a 95% failure rate, and takes 13.5years. These trends are rapidly increasing making this process unattractive.

Our Solution: The Power of Computers

1) Build

+ Real

2)Test

Within the last 5 years, computers have become powerful enough toadequately model proteins. It is now possible to build ligands and test themagainst a protein target all within a computer, allowing users to “see” howligands and proteins interact. This capability offers several advantages; 1) theligand search space is vastly narrowed, 2) just about any ligand can be tested,not just the ones that currently exist, enabling innovative exploration, and 3)insight is generated about which interactions work, allowing for quickeroptimization of ligands. Virtual idea-build-test cycles are shorter, quicker, andcost 1/100th the time and finances of their real-world counterparts leading toinnovative and efficient searching even before any real ligands have been built.

Our Solution: Innovation by People + Power of Computers

We humans have intuition, a powerful ability to find patterns, passion,creativity, and the spirit of exploration. When these attributes are combinedwith the advantages brought about by computers, a potent solution to findingand improving medicine emerges. At MedWorks Medicine by Design, we host afree, open, and collaborative platform which enables anyone with a browser tobuild, explore, and test ligand designs against disease target models. We thenrefine these designs into potential medicine starting points and sell them to ourcustomers, saving them time, money, and resources in the search for medicine.This lowers the barriers involved in getting medicine to our beneficiaries.

Our Services

In pursuit of a particular medicine, medicine makers typically synthesize thentest a large numbers of ligands, known as a library, against a particular proteintarget in a process known as High Throughput Screening (HTS). The HTSmethod is essentially an expensive and blind search through ligand possibilities.We assemble a collection of ligands (potential medicine starting points), whichwere developed from our medicine design platform, into a virtual ligand library.We then sell this library to our customers who synthesize the ligands in thelibrary and test them against a disease target. Since we utilize a knowledgebased approach to designing these ligands, they are more focused on thedisease target and enrich the possibilities for producing an effective medicine.

How we enter the market

Initially our innovation partners (students, the public and researchers) will learnto design medicine using our proprietary models via our open online platform.We will then refine the information and have the platform available for thegeneral public. Further refinement will generate actionable knowledge whichwe sell to medicine makers in the form of virtual ligand libraries for enhancingreal HTS (vHTS). We will charge $10K for each virtual ligand library (vHTS).

The Competitive Landscape

Our competitive advantage lies in combining the power of computers to modelhow ligands and their protein targets interact, ability to store large amounts ofdata, and find patters (dynamics based) with the creativity, intuition, andpassion of collaborating human designers (crowd design).

Our Technological Advantage

Our technological advantage lies in three main areas:1) Browser based design of medicineThe medicine design portion of our platform,www.WeDesignMedicine.com, is completely browserbased thereby being operating system independentand obviating the need for downloading or keepingup with software revisions.2) Crowd computingOur platform leverages the collective computationalpower of many individual browsers which arededicated to running the calculations that are a partof the design of medicine.3) Our computational models and databasesOur proprietary computational models and databasesare used to test and store ligands which have beendesigned in web browsers. They have a low operatingcost, are easily scalable, and are secured.
