Adds ~25 new jobs, building on 20 created in 2021. Increases capacity and efficiency of AI-based drug discovery capabilities in chemistry and biology.

Celeris Therapeutics, Inc., the pioneer in AI-driven degrader discovery, today announced the start of their lab construction site in Graz, Austria.

CelerisTx develops a proprietary platform based on machine learning to predict the biomolecular interactions involved in a novel therapeutic modality that induces targeted protein degradation to degrade pathogenic proteins causing untreatable diseases. CelerisTx's drug pipeline covers several neurological indications, such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's, oncology, and aging-related diseases.

"With the 500 square meters of laboratory space, CelerisTx is evolving from a computational platform provider to an early-stage biotech company operating from molecule generation to lead optimization to IND filing. I am proud to announce this milestone for partners, investors, colleagues, and humankind.", says Christopher Trummer, the CEO and Co-Founder. 

CelerisTx implements a chemical lab to synthesize novel drugs and a biological lab for assays, validations, cell cultures, and molecular biology. 

With this site, CelerisTx can cover the development until the preclinical phase in-house. The facility will be ready in February 2022 and will take an initial investment of 2 million euros.

"Drug development and discovery is our added value to the world. Having the essential wet lab set up to accelerate the biological validation of our compounds is consequently a critical milestone and will bring value to the region with many new workplaces.", says Jakob Hohenberger, CFO/COO, and Co-Founder.

CelerisTx runs 5 promising wholly-owned drug discovery programs.

Neuro I against Parkinson's close to the Lead Optimization. Neuro II against Alzheimer's, two oncology programs, and one aging-related program. The upcoming PK/PD results for Neuro I will be published in Q1 2022.
