Drugs used to be discovered by taking millions of natural substances, like tree bark, snake venom, plant extracts, and others, and testing them in the laboratory to see what made animals better. Newer methods used chemical “screening” to test thousands of materials at a time to see what reacted with natural proteins. Quantum Cures uses a computer program to match the shape of a target protein to a molecule that is specifically designed to “fit” that protein, like a key in a lock. Using artificial intelligence methods, millions of molecules are examined by the program, and the best ones are found. That’s why Quantum Cures needs to use your computer’s spare computing power, and millions of others around the world, too.
