How artificial intelligence revolutionized drug discovery

Ernst Schering Prize 2022-winning biochemist and bioinformatician Prof. Gisbert Schneider will present his pioneering work in the field of targeted molecular design using machine learning methods at the Ernst Schering Prize Lecture:

The development of new drugs is a long and costly, often random process with a high error rate. Only one in a million molecules ever makes it to market. At the same time, many suitable drugs are not discovered. The challenge is to select the best molecules and eliminate those with undesirable side effects or low efficacy. The human mind struggles with this task. Artificial intelligence can significantly improve the odds of success by designing molecules from scratch instead of searching for them in costly experiments. Some of the decision-making is transferred from humans to a virtual “chemical intelligence” capable of independently generating promising molecules. The computer model mimics human creativity by learning from historical data. It takes into account not only the chemical structure of a molecule, but also its potential biological effect. This innovative concept has become a reality in numerous research institutions and pharmaceutical companies worldwide and has already achieved groundbreaking success.
