    • Advances in the Discovery of Protein-Protein Interaction Modulators

    • Life Sciences; Drug Discovery
    • Pharma is running out of �druggable� targets that have not already been addressed by marketed drugs. Therefore, efforts to tackle protein-protein interactions � previously considered �undruggable� � are becoming increasingly important.
    • 2012/04/13
    • Advances in the Stem Cell Industry

    • Life Sciences; Drug Discovery
    • A milestone in stem cell technology occurred in 2007, when human cells were induced into a stem cell state using defined genetic factors. These cells, now known as induced pluripotent stem (IPS) cells, offer an alternative to embryonic stem cells.
