Visualizing Drug Targets With Ligand Express

In the development of a therapeutic pharmaceutical agent, it is crucial to understand the on- and off-target effects the molecule may have within the body. Cyclica's Ligand Express® is a cloud-based platform that screens small-molecule drugs against structurally-characterized proteins, or "proteomes" to determine polypharmacological profiles. We spoke with Naheed Kurji, President & CEO, and Andreas Windemuth, Chief Science Officer, from Cyclica to find out more.
