Drug discovery is the process through which potential new medicines are identified. It involves a wide range of scientific disciplines, including biology, chemistry, pharmacology, and biotechnology. Chemical rational design, biological-target-based searching, natural compound screening, chemo-/bio-informatics, and metabolites from metabolomics are all ways used to discover new drugs. In addition, in vitro, in vivo, and clinical testing is the essential path for drug discovery. We aim to showcase the drug discovery field in our Biomedicines journal by launching this Special Issue. Review articles on topics related (but not limited) to the above-mentioned areas (including reviews on special individual compound/drug and/or target) are all welcome. Reviews have to most up-to-date and focus on the development of recent 10 years.
