I see you have already dedided about the topic :lol:

Well, first you need to know the target, which you want to affect. Then there are several ways, how to get the drugs, which need to be consequently tested, approved and sold ;)

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

How about a comparative approach. One way to get candidate compounds is high-throughput screening. A very different method is rational drug design. You can prod at those key phrases to get an outline of those two methods, then write a two-track essay comparing them. Your Prof might like to see that you understand there is not just one method for all drugs. While this sounds harder, you can probably give a bit less detail and still write a strong essay because you are considering two broad methods of drug discovery.

or try to start from herbal.
You can describe the isolation process and then testing it to cells or animal for pharmacology activity based on empiric evidence.

start like this
The drug discovery process entails long development processes which are expensive and have high risks associated
with almost every step. Despite technology allowing us to screen an ever increasing array of targets and molecules, the total number of drug approvals has been significantly reduced since 1995. The spiralling costs of taking molecules forward into the clinic are, in part, associated with ever increasing efficacy and safety criteria that are required.
try to get more points and include in it.
