Using Artificial Intelligence to Combat COVID-19
Guest: Thomas Caulfield, Ph.D.
Host: Amit K Ghosh, M.D., MBA (@AmitGhosh006)
In this podcast, Dr. Thomas Caulfield from Mayo Clinic Florida describes a novel approach for SARS-CoV2 multi-drug targeting using artificial intelligence. Dr. Caulfield is leading a national team of investigators from Harvard, University of California, In Vivo Biosystems and Mayo Clinic to perform large-scale in silico and in vivo experiments on de novo drugs to better understand COVID-19 and halt its progression. University of California hosts a live virus BSL3 facility for rapidly screening novel compounds that Dr. Caulfield’s lab designs in silico and refines with feedback using machine learning techniques and data layering.
