Following our pole star to a transformative collaboration

Dark Matter Blog

The second is that while it may be hard to achieve molecular recognition, it’s even harder to make a drug, which is to say a molecule that you can eat, that distributes throughout the body, and survives long enough to find its target. Consequently, we were going to stick to chemical space where we know real drugs live.
