'Receptor deorphanization, the discovery of selective ligands for targets where none was previously known, is an important problem in biology because it enables new research. Molecular docking is a pragmatic approach to use protein structure for novel ligand discovery. Recently, virtual screening libraries have increased in size dramatically, driven by new building block synthesis and new reliable, low-cost reaction schemes.

We will show how molecular docking may be used to discover new ligands for previously orphan receptors[1], and reveal how the availability of these compounds can lead to new insights in pharmacology.'
