Biophysical imaging techniques have become a standard part of the drug discovery process for academic researchers and pharmaceutical companies. From early-stage involvement in target identification and validation to evaluating disease models and driving biomarker analysis in clinical research, these tools provide the necessary structural information of biological systems to drive this process.

In this Spotlight, we aim to review advancements and current obstacles in the development and application of biophysical imaging techniques in drug discovery. We will take a look at the implications of novel techniques such as cryo-EM, the continuous development of more established methods including x-ray crystallography and investigate the evolving application of these methods to various aspects of drug discovery. 

You can access the highlights below, as well as any exclusive content published over the coming weeks, on the Spotlight channel.
