The development of new drugs is being carried out with the aid of advanced computer modeling—a method that has proven to be highly successful. “We provide the expertise in the theoretical description of new drugs. In our research, we aim to describe at a detailed level what they should look like, what properties they should have to match the right targets in the body, what happens if we alter the molecules in different ways, and so on. We then put this together through collaboration with experimental or clinically active research teams within OLSC and at the hospital, which makes the research exciting and dynamic,” says Eriksson.
