How can we accelerate successful drug discovery and development?

The success of clinical candidate development depends on several factors, important among them are generation of novel, therapeutically-relevant chemical structures, early and rapid assessment of possible efficacy of candidate structures in pre-clinical therapeutic models and rapid elimination of candidates that will ultimately prove unsuccessful. Innovative processes and techniques that facilitate optimal candidate selection is a crucial step in accelerating drug discovery and development timelines.
