Overcoming psychological barriers to good discovery decisions


This article explores the psychological barriers and risks of cognitive biases to R&D decision-making. It contrasts current practice with the use of evidence-based medicine by healthcare practitioners. It touches on how computational tools, such as StarDrop‘s integrated suite of discovery software, can help support good decision making in drug discovery.
