Evaluation and publication of rigorous studies that support each stage of drug discovery and development are key to the mission of Pharmacology Research & Perspectives. After careful review, the papers in this virtual issue have been published in PR & P, and each provides useful and important understanding of the likelihood of success of “drugging” a potential drug target. This success is contingent on far more than a good idea, or a promising result from a molecular or cellular assay. In addition to those early discovery findings we publish studies in each step along the path to the realization of a drug that has efficacy for the treatment of human disease.
