BenchSci is on a mission to accelerate the pace of biomedical discoveries.
Today scientists are faced with a major challenge: up to 50% of their experiments fail because of the poor quality of biological compounds. Before using a compound, scientists review thousands of scientific papers in order to identify those that have been proven to “work” by the scientific community. This is a long, rigorous process, taking hours, sometimes even weeks.

Enter BenchSci. We are creating a cutting edge technology that automates this process and
allows scientists to achieve biomedical discoveries faster. Our technology decodes scientific
papers and extracts the crucial information that scientists need. With BenchSci, scientists can now find biological compounds that have been proven to work within seconds.
If you are excited about machine learning, science, marketplaces, startups, and building cool stuff, we want to talk to you!
