ZebiAI, TB Alliance collaborate on tuberculosis targets

By The Science Advisory Board staff writers

February 2, 2021 -- Biotech firm ZebiAI has announced a collaboration agreement with nonprofit TB Alliance to further the discovery, development, and delivery of tuberculosis drugs.

TB Alliance will provide funds for ZebiAI to develop small molecule probes against key tuberculosis targets. The nonprofit will also have the right to exercise options for further discovery work on each target with ZebiAI.

The partnership is part of ZebiAI's Chemome Initiative, which utilizes the company's proprietary machine-learning algorithms to drive compound discovery, characterize protein function, and validate novel therapeutic targets.
