Marcel Hilbert, a researcher from the Laboratory for Therapeutic Innovation, evokes the creation by many researchers of a national chemical library which contains 40 000 molecules made by chemists and about 15 000 collected natural substances extracts. Robots are used to test them and maybe discover new biologically active molecules and thus develop new pharmaceutical drugs.
