The process to develop new medicines stars with the identification of small molecules that can modulate a biological target or pathway associated to the disease. In the last twenty years Fragment Based Drug Discovery (FBDD) emerged as a successful alternative to conventional high throughput screening for the generation of chemical hits for drug targets. FBDD offers the advantage of covering larger amounts of chemical space with a relatively small number of different compounds.
