Transcriptic to Oversee Robotic Cloud Lab For Eli Lilly
Transcriptic announced today that it has entered into a multi-year collaboration agreement with Eli Lilly and Company whereby Lilly will license the Transcriptic Common Lab Environment (TCLE) to enable on-demand drug discovery operations at its San Diego Biotechnology Center. The solution Transcriptic is developing for Lilly will allow researchers across the globe to remotely design, synthesize and screen investigational molecules at the Lilly Life Science Studio (L2S2).
Headquartered in Silicon Valley, Transcriptic created the first robotic cloud laboratory platform for on-demand life science research. The company's TCLE integrates laboratory processes, protocols and instruments together with IoT technologies through a single user interface to enable robust automation, scalability, flexibility and remote instrument monitoring.
Using the power of automation along with artificial intelligence and machine learning, Transcriptic and Lilly will seek to shape the next generation of drug discovery and expand the reach of individual scientists to test new ideas, while reducing the cost, accelerating the speed and minimizing the environmental impact of research activities.
“We are excited to extend the Transcriptic TCLE environment to our San Diego Biotechnology Center,” said Bret Huff, Lilly’s Vice President of Small Molecule Design and Development. “We believe this capability will transform how new drugs are discovered internally and enhance Lilly’s partnerships with external innovators.”
Yvonne Linney PhD, Transcriptic's Chief Executive Officer commented: "We were impressed with the forward-thinking investment Lilly made in its Life Science Studio and are excited that the global pharmaceutical leader chose Transcriptic to power the L2S2 through our platform. Our mutual goal is to revolutionize drug discovery and find ways to accelerate the process and increase success. We are confident that the Transcriptic Common Lab Environment is the right technology platform to support the next wave of innovation in biotechnology."
“We became early, major investors in Transcriptic because we felt strongly that leaders in the pharmaceutical industry would demand a landmark shift in how science drives drug discovery, and that artificial intelligence and robotics would be key to this industry transformation,” said Matt Ocko, Managing Partner of DCVC (Data Collective). “The Lilly - Transcriptic partnership validates DCVC’s fundamental investment thesis in the life sciences.”

Researchers have performed the most definitive study to date on the relationship between technology use and adolescent mental health, examining data from over 300,000 teenagers and parents in the UK and USA. At most, only 0.4% of adolescent wellbeing is related to screen use - which only slightly surpasses the negative effect of regularly eating potatoes.
George is a zebrafish. Along with Tom and 98 other mates, George swims freely in a laboratory tank at the Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown (CCU), in Lisbon, Portugal. Question: is it possible to identify, from video images, which fish is which at every moment? Yes, say researchers who have built a software, called idtracker.ai (where “ai” stands for artificial intelligence, or AI) that can do the job quickly and with extreme accuracy.READ MORE
A Canadian-led team of scientists has found the second repeating fast radio burst (FRB) ever recorded. FRBs are short bursts of radio waves coming from far outside our Milky Way galaxy. Scientists believe FRBs emanate from powerful astrophysical phenomena billions of light years away.
