About Molomics

Molomics is a small-molecule drug discovery company located in Barcelona. We empower Artificial Intelligence (AI) with Human Collective Intelligence (HCI) to effectively search the chemical space in silico to find structurally novel drugs. HCI, hardly explored in drug design, is the knowledge, logic and problem solving skills of all team members, potentiated through their real-time collaboration. Our proprietary technology integrates AI with HCI to maximize drug quality and structural novelty to determine more efficacious & safer Leads. Molomics current in-house programs focus on drugs for Parkinson’s Disease (PD).
