What Scientific Breakthroughs Would Europe’s Leading Scientists Like to See in 2019?
2019 will be a very special year according to some of Europe’s leading scientists including Professor Lee Cronin (University of Glasgow).
The EU Horizon Magazine asked the question 'which scientific breakthrough they would like to see in 2019' with Reversed Aging, Electric Aircraft, Proof of Dark Energy Social Network Transparency, Personalised Nutrition and Epilepsy Correction being just a few of the 18 areas discussed in the article.
Professor Lee Cronin highlighted developments in AI-designed drugs predicting that that we will see an increased digitalisation of chemistry, including a programming language that allows drug discovery and the fabrication of complex molecules.
‘(This ) will not only lead to the discovery and design of new molecules, but lay the groundwork for the discovery of complex chemical systems that could be used to understand the origin of life and make artificial life forms in the laboratory,’ he said.
