The way toward discovery and development of new drugs is an incredibly expensive and tedious process. Thousands of compounds may be potential candidates for development as a medical treatment. However, only a small number of compounds look promising and call for further study. Pharmaceutical companies have to make sure that only safe and effectual medications are released to the public. With long time lines for drug discovery and development and high failure rates, many investigators work in a therapeutic area for years without seeing a new generation of medicines. Incremental learning shared across various disciplines involved in the process and across the stages of drug development is key to deliver new medicines.
