Developing a new drug starts with identifying the molecule or “ligand” that can block the molecular target or “receptor” involved in a disease. Even with high throughput screening, finding that one functional ligand for a receptor from a haystack of millions of possible compounds is expensive, high–risk and time–consuming. Converting a promising target into a […]
