Reinventing drug discovery with the power of genomics


We use machine learning and human genomic data to
accelerate the discovery of new treatments for patients with neurodegenerative diseases.

 

A multi-disciplinary team pioneering a new approach to drug discovery.

Verge was founded by a unique combination of the field's top machine learning experts and seasoned neuroscience drug developers. Together, we share the vision that exponential advances in computational genomics combined with new insights into neuroscience has created a breakthrough opportunity to discover drugs that dramatically improve the lives of patients suffering from neurodegenerative disease.

Diseases are caused by hundreds of genes


Diseases are caused by hundreds of genes


Most drugs only target one gene at a time.

Neurological diseases are caused by complex interactions between many genes. Many drug discoveries fail because researchers target only one gene at a time. Using the same breakthroughs that power Google’s search engines, we’ve discovered a way to map out the hundreds of genes that cause a disease, and then find drugs that target all the genes at once.

Verge moves drug discovery from the lab to the computer.

Artificial intelligence to solve healthcare's biggest challenge: neurodegenerative disease

Neurodegenerative diseases represent a growing global crisis. The current estimated cost to society is over $650 billion worldwide, and projected to reach over $1 trillion per year by 2020. Currently, no treatments prevent or stop the progression of the major neurodegenerative diseases.

In the past, most neuroscientists did not have the tools to disentangle the complex genetics of these diseases. Accelerating advances in human genomics, combined with recent insights into neurobiology, have created an unprecedented opportunity for the discovery of breakthrough treatments in the central nervous system (CNS). Our platform is specifically designed for neurological diseases, and can analyze thousands of datasets to identify new targets, predict effective drugs, and stratify patient subpopulations. Verge's genomic network approach offers a breakthrough opportunity to identify drugs that dramatically improve patient outcomes and fundamentally bend the cost curve of pharmaceutical development.

The result: fewer failed drugs, cures for patients within their lifetimes.
