We believe better medicine is possible, and it starts here

Each year millions of scientific journals are published that have the potential to deliver better health outcomes. And every year it gets harder to put it all to use.

So we created DrugBank

While working in Dr. Wishart's lab at the University of Alberta, Craig Knox and Michael Wilson helped create a code-based download of about 4,000 drugs.

As word spread there was a high-quality, machine learning ready dataset available, demand surged. This got them thinking about how great research often doesn't make it beyond campus walls.

With Dr. Wishart's blessing they set out to make scientific findings and data accessible. And today, we're on a mission to augment human intelligence so that everyone has access to the best possible medical outcomes.

Oh, and that game changing 4,000 drug dataset? It's sitting at about 500,000 drugs and drug products and counting.

“Our ultimate vision of the future is to change the way medicine is done”
