Optimizing Kinetics in Drug Discovery


As biology presents ever-more challenging targets, the chemistry world is pushing ahead with new tools to design or discover drugs that have optimal kinetics – they bind well to their target, exert the desired effect and have acceptable toxicity profiles. We look at two different approaches being used to explore and optimize the kinetics of tomorrow’s medicines.
