About this Research Topic
This Research Topic aims to bring together a collection of papers that individually and collectively use AI-enhanced drug discovery and personalized medicine. We aim to highlight that AI facilitates drug discovery and reveals molecular insights with an in-depth understanding of biology. AI algorithms can potentially transform most discovery tasks, such as drug design and adverse reaction prediction, so physical experiments are conducted only when required to validate results. For example, AI-driven personalized medicine revolutionizes potential treatment globally by providing sustainable clinical responses and avoiding side effects by integrating multi-Omics, molecular structural, imaging, and clinical data. To reveal appropriate intervention “agents” and strategies for treating an individual with a disease, AI can infer the potential IC50 of drugs in developing personalized medicines. Then, the pharmaceutical company can benefit from AI-driven personalized therapy and perform clinical trials for phenotypic monitoring and drug monitoring. We strive to gather research papers from many domains where AI can play such a role and highlight AI’s ability in advanced personalized medicine with in-depth learning from data.
The Research Topic will focus on late-breaking research, including but not limited to the following topics:
1) AI-enabled multi-Omics data integration and explainable discovery.
2) AI-based insights into drug-target characterization and prediction.
3) AI-enhanced cohort stratification.
4) AI-enhanced network medicine.
5) AI-enhanced systematic complex disease therapy.
6) AI-based drug-drug adverse reaction.
7) AI-based analysis in single-cell data.
8) AI-based analysis of medical imaging data.
9) AI & ML methods for personalized drug repurposing.
10) Supervised, Unsupervised, self-supervised, and semi-supervised ML methods for personalized drug discovery processes.
Keywords: Artificial Intelligence, Drug Discovery, drug repurposing, personalized medicine, drug combination
