about the project
... has improved dramatically over the last decades - will it continue to do so?
... are exploding also because huge ressources have to be spent for finding new drugs.
... are droping in this sector, despite the increased effort.
... is an extremely complicated enterprise due to the many factors which play a role.
... are unavoidable in this process, also because predictions are not good enough.
... are mostly used to identify the most promising compounds for further experiments.
Computational drug design
... usually involves the 'virtual screening' of a very large number of candidate compounds.
... requires a very accurate description of the basic physical interactions.
... is important for these interactions, but can usually not be taken into account.
... performs quantum mechanical computations on medically relevant biomolecular systems.
... for quantum-mechanics-based virtual screening approaches is our main goal.
... could be decisive for the future of drug development.>
... from 'putting more physics into the screening process' are numerous. Two very important ones are:
... through cheaper drug development processes.
Rare or complex diseases
... can be more easily addressed when development costs are low.
First, inofficial test units out.
This is just to check that everything works as it should.
