Co-led by Mubadala Capital and Horizons Ventures, funding will power Juvena’s AI-enabled drug discovery platform to map the therapeutic potential of secreted proteins.

Juvena Therapeutics announced that it has raised $41 million in Series A, bringing its total funding to $50 million.

It combines a compounding database mapping secreted proteins to specific diseases.
