Kinetics for Drug Discovery (K4DD) (K4DD)

Start date: Nov 1, 2012, End date: Oct 31, 2017,

There is mounting evidence that the often ignored kinetic aspects of the interaction between a drug and its target are highly relevant for clinical success. This ignorance may be one of the reasons for the high attrition rates in drug discovery, as it has been analyzed that many recently marketed drugs had indeed improved kinetic profiles. This hindsight knowledge needs to be converted into data-d ...
