Market Landscape of Blockchain in Healthcare: The growing use of the technology in Drug Discovery and Clinical Trials

In recent years, blockchain has garnered significant interest of researchers, as well as industry players, as it has proven to be a versatile tool for decentralized monetary transactions and data exchange in various industries, such as banking, cyber security, supply chain management, government and healthcare. Several stakeholders in healthcare have adopted blockchain for various operations,

Artificial Intelligence in Drug Discovery

Drug discovery is a complex process which involves significant utilization of time and resources. As per several sources, on an average, the entire drug development process (from initial proof-of-concept to commercial launch) takes around 10-15 years and capital investments worth USD 4-10 billion to develop a drug from concept to commercial launch. The early stages

Targeted Protein Degradation – A New Frontier in Modern Medicine

The concept of targeted protein degradation (TPD) presents revolutionary drug development opportunities and is anticipated to bring about a paradigm shift in modern healthcare. While conventional medicines, such as small molecule inhibitors and monoclonal antibodies, address fewer than 20% of the proteome, targeted protein degradation offers a unique means to tap into the rest of

Computer Aided Drug Discovery Providers for Large Molecules

Over time, the complexities associated with drug discovery have increased, especially in case of large molecule drugs, which are inherently more complex than conventional small molecules. As a result, an increase in the overall research and development (R&D) expenditure in the pharmaceutical contract manufacturing / biotechnology sector has been witnessed. In addition to the complexities

In Silico Drug Discovery: Drug Discovery Operations in COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic is predicted to throw the global economy into recession, with loss of trillions of dollars. The pharmaceutical industry cannot escape the brunt of the circumstances as well. In fact, according to a survey, 95% of healthcare industry professionals are worried about the impact the pandemic is likely to have on the industry. So far,
