From L-R: Aaron Morris, Matt Robinson and Alpha Lee (PostEra)

A new AI start­up has emerged, and Pfiz­er likes what it sees

Aaron Mor­ris and Al­pha Lee met years ago while study­ing ap­plied math­e­mat­ics at Ox­ford Uni­ver­si­ty. They even­tu­al­ly went their sep­a­rate ways, with Mor­ris div­ing in­to ma­chine learn­ing ap­pli­ca­tions in fi­nance while Lee re­searched how it could trans­form med­i­c­i­nal chem­istry. But some­time around 2019, Mor­ris re­al­ized Lee was on­to some­thing.

“I think we sat down to­geth­er as co-founders in 2019 and said, ‘I think there’s a kind of suf­fi­cient sci­en­tif­ic depth here to mer­it form­ing a com­pa­ny around it,’” said Mor­ris, who’s now CEO of the com­pa­ny, PostEra.
