Shared Principles Among Materials Scientists and Medicinal Chemists



At first glance, it may seem that the work that goes on at research and development labs in applied materials companies has little in common with the drug discovery processes used in the pharmaceutical industry.

Upon closer inspection, it becomes clear that the principles are, in fact, very similar. Both disciplines face similar challenges, whilst some of the approaches, algorithms, and advanced tools, developed by medicinal chemists can be also applicable to materials research.
