About Auransa

Founded in 2014, Auransa is an artificial intelligence (AI)-driven biotechnology company developing precision medicines in areas of significant unmet medical need.  The company is working to redefine precision medicine by combining a sophisticated, proprietary predictive computational platform with traditional pharmaceutical industry experience.  The company’s SMarTR Engine, which leverages machine learning, advanced analytics and mathematics in an AI framework generates insights from molecular data for a deep understanding of disease biology and patient subtypes. This information, when paired with the company’s breadth of in-house drug discovery and development expertise, drives the identification of novel compounds designed to most effectively address significant unmet medical needs for clinically meaningful disease subtypes.  The company has successfully generated a broad pipeline of drug candidates that are advancing toward investigational new drug (IND) filings.  While Auransa is internally focused on oncology, the SMarTR Engine has also generated candidates in the areas of neurology, inflammation, infectious disease and metabolic disease.  In addition to the programs being advanced internally, Auransa has also entered into an exclusive regional licensing agreement with a subsidiary of Lee’s Pharmaceutical Holdings Ltd. for the development and commercialization of one of the first programs generated by the SMarTR Engine.  For more information, please visit: www.auransa.com.
