We already know that drug design has moved to new levels, where it is a process that is driven by innovation and technological breakthroughs that involve a combination of advanced experimental and computational methods. A broad variety of medicinal chemistry approaches can be used to identify hits, the generation of leads, as well as to accelerate the optimisation of leads into drug candidates. The quantitative structure-activity relationship formalisms are among the most important strategies that can be applied to successfully design new molecules, according to a paper that was published by Andrade et al on PubMed.
