About PostEra

PostEra offers Medicinal Chemistry powered by Machine Learning

Drug discovery R&D is slow and expensive and this limits biotechs and pharma from getting new drugs into development and new cures to patients. PostEra is building an end-to-end med chem platform to advance drug discovery and serve the world's ever expanding community of drug hunters.

We've raised $26M from top tech/healthcare investors and signed large multi-year deals with companies like Pfizer.

What are we working on?

The answer is many things but here's our top priorities right now:

  • Partnerships: We partner with drug hunters and help them get cures to patients faster. We're currently collaborating with Pfizer and several small biotechs, using all of PostEra's ML to help their drug discovery.
  • Manifold: The first-of-its-kind SaaS platform for scientists to get molecules made.
  • COVID Moonshot: PostEra is helping lead the world's largest open-source drug discovery effort. Moonshot is an international team of scientists working on an antiviral cure for COVID and in 1 year we've gone from ideas on a website to potent compounds which should soon be ready for human trials.
