14 June 2019 | By

Progressing drug discovery projects to a stage that attracts commercial interest is a challenging endeavour, evidenced by the fact that only a small proportion of drug discovery projects are successfully progressed to such a stage. A major cause of this is the lack of comprehensive profiling of compounds prior to…

Structure based drug discovery facilitated by crystallography

Drugs exert therapeutically meaningful effects if they bind with appropriate…

15 September 2017 | By ,

Drugs exert therapeutically meaningful effects if they bind with appropriate selectively and potency to their respective targets. Although many of the assay techniques employed in early-stage drug discovery provide evidence that a drug is acting upon the target under investigation, this is often indirect and the site of action and…
