rational drug design

The study of the shape of molecules in order to determine how they will bind receptors on cells or combine with other molecules. Drug design that is based on molecular shape or architecture is an alternative to blindly testing hundreds of molecules to see if one or more of them will bind cellular or molecular targets.
