This is a cutting edge concept that researchers should consider to counter the effects of Eroom’s Law. For all you computer nerds, yes, that is Moore’s Law spelled backwards.
Eroom’s Law works on the idea that the number of new drugs approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) per billion US dollars spent on research and development will split in half about every 9 years. Translation: researchers need money to fund their drug experiment habit. The problem with this is money isn’t always easy to come by for unproven, experimental drugs.
