molecules of the month


The Drug Hunter Molecules of the Month series began in 2020 and highlights small molecules with recently published data or stories that are relevant and inspirational to our work. Research publications from each month are reviewed, nominations for selection are accepted from readers and reviewers, candidates are finalized by the team and send for comment, and the finalists are published.   You can find all of the past Molecules of the Month in the Hall of Fame by month below. Each molecule comes with a summary explaining what was interesting or novel about each molecule, along with context behind the molecule's discovery and development.
