The Drug Discovery Process

From initial discovery to a marketable medicine is a long, challenging road. It takes approximately 12-15 years to take a compound from discovery to the approved medication and requires an investment of about $1 billion. On average, from more than a million screened molecules only one is investigated in late stage clinical trials and is finally made available for patients.
