Structural Biology in Drug Discovery

 Rational drug design aims to develop small molecules (drugs) with a therapeutic effect by targeting biomolecules in order to influence their biological function. Structural biology has a diverse arsenal of methods available to study (bio) molecular structures. Information on the shape and possible interaction sites of binding sites on these molecules can be used to design small molecules with high binding affinity. The structural information is a valuable input in different stages of drug development such as lead optimization or drug design. Structural determination of bio molecules could serve as therapeutic target is an important starting point in rational drug design. Once the structure of a biological target is known, a potential binding site for drugs and possible interactions at this site have to be identified in the stage of drug design.
