Analyzing AlphaFold’s potential in drug discovery

CAMBRIDGE, MA—A new study from MIT shows that while computational models may one day provide a faster, cheaper way to identify new drugs, they aren’t there yet. Current screening methods for potential drugs are prohibitively expensive and time-consuming....

Compound in trees may kill drug-resistant bacteria

Researchers have found a naturally occurring compound, known as hydroquinine, that has bacterial killing activity against several microorganisms. Antimicrobial resistance is one of the greatest threats to public health globally. It occurs when bacteria, viruses,...
