How up to date are you on the most recent developments in drug discovery? Did you happen to read about the mind-blowing 3D printer capable of printing human skin using an “ink” made of cells? Or perhaps about the surge in investments in artificial intelligence (AI)-driven drug discovery startups?

These are just two examples of drug discovery and development news that are currently in the spotlight. While 3D-bioprinting allows the testing of new drugs and cosmetics on bioprinted human tissues instead of cells or animals, AI promises to increase the efficiency of the drug discovery process and cut the costs of R&D for new drugs by improving their design, screening, and customization.

The drug discovery field is moving fast and the hardest part of staying up to date is not reading enough. But where do we start searching for the latest and greatest news? Take a look at this list to stay informed about the latest breakthroughs and trends in drug discovery and development.
