Abstract: We are currently facing a global health challenge regarding the way we discover and develop new drugs. Small biotech companies, as well as large pharmaceutical corporations, spend increasingly more money on the classical route of drug development, and it fails more often than it succeeds. Consequently, some diseases are not being treated and patients who are in dire need of new therapies are not receiving them. The classic tools available for testing whether a drug will work efficiently and safely or fail before we reach advanced stages of human clinical trials and spend millions of dollars, do not predict in a robust way.
