According to a UNM Health Sciences Center release, Tudor Oprea, a professor of Internal Medicine and chief of UNM’s Translational Informatics Division, and a team collaborators, have pulled back the curtain on an open-source archive for drug discovery, development and safety that is 20 years in the making.

According to the release, the group recently published their work in the journal “Nature Reviews Drug Discovery.”

“This is a landmark paper,” David Schade, a distinguished professor in the UNM School of Medicine who oversees clinical research in the Department of Internal Medicine, was quoted as saying in the release. “Diseases that were not treatable 10 years ago are now treatable — that’s because of new medications that have been developed and approved by the Food and Drug Administration.”
