InstaDeep attends Festival of Biologics San Diego



Following on from the successful Festival of Biologics Basel last November, InstaDeep presented its DeepChain protein design platform at the prestigious Festival of Biologics San Diego this 9-11 March, as part of the company’s planned expansion into the US. 

InstaDeep was a Gold sponsor of “America’s most exciting biologics event”, which included a diverse agenda of interactive workshops, insightful panel discussions and ground-breaking keynotes. 

Senior members of the DeepChain team showcased how the AI-powered platform accelerates protein research and protein-based drug development, and ran many live product demos at the company’s booth throughout the 3-day event.

  • Dr Marcin J. Skwark, InstaDeep’s Bioinformatics Lead, presented a talk on DeepChain’s role in democratising access to AI for protein engineering.
