September 04, 2019 / VICTORIA REES

A report from scientists at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology highlights the advantages and disadvantages of serial femtosecond X-ray crystallography. This article investigates the review, focusing on its role in drug development. The article delves into the reasons behind the researcher’s findings, explaining why SFX is a progression for X-ray imaging in drug development, while highighting that its application in structure-based drug discovery (SBDD) requires further changes to reduce the time and costs associated with the technique.
