AI-driven automated chemistry as a tool to accelerate drug discovery

15 May 2019 | By

Typically, early drug discovery campaigns start with the screening of chemical libraries to identify candidate chemotypes modulating a particular target and/or phenotype. Success of the primary screening depends on multiple factors related to both biology and chemistry. These include the target’s druggability, sensitivity and specificity of assay system, composition and…


Novel drug therapy partially restores hearing in mice
