Schrödinger, Google Cloud to supply massively parallel computing efforts to global COVID-19 initiative
Digital molecule designer Schrödinger is expanding its efforts against the novel coronavirus, using its partnership with Google’s cloud computing division to screen new potential antivirals as part of a global Big Pharma collaboration.
Schrödinger plans to virtually evaluate billions of small molecules each week in a hunt for ones that may match up with different protein targets.
With thousands of processors running at once, Schrödinger hopes to shave months to years off a more traditional drug discovery effort. Following the discovery phase, the initiative’s partners will carry the lead molecules through optimization, synthesis and clinical testing.
