What does BenchSci do?

We help scientists get novel medicines to patients faster
Experiments drive scientific discovery yet a majority of them fail. This results in life-saving treatments being delayed by months or even years. Our goal is to exponentially increase the speed and quality of biomedical research by providing scientists with the technology they need to discover new medicines faster.
Our ASCEND platform is revolutionizing preclinical research Using ASCEND, drug research scientists can discover biological connections, surface contextual experimental evidence, and uncover risks early so they can move the most promising projects forward faster.
