In this exclusive Q&A, Drug Target Review’s Ria Kakkad spoke with Dr Jonathan Javitch, Professor at Columbia University’s Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons, about the cutting-edge imaging method single-molecule fluorescence resonance energy transfer (smFRET), used to investigate G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs).

Scientists have gained new insights into the way G protein-coupled receptors operate, a step toward the development of improved drugs with fewer side effects.
A peptide administered to ferrets protected them from SARS-CoV-2 viral transmission when housed with infected ferrets.
Engineered deubiquitinases combines a synthetic nanobody that recognises a protein that can rescue proteins tagged for destruction.
Researchers have demonstrated that cysteinase, a new drug compound, can starve pancreatic cells of cysteine supply, causing ferroptosis.
Using a compound called PTC596 in combination with other drugs, researchers effectively treated pancreatic cancer in mice.
