    I would like to ask a question about 'close in on'

    Hello, teachers.
    I would like to ask a question about 'close in on'.
    Does it mean 'come closer' in this sentence below?
    Does it sound fine?

    Thank you in advance ^^

    Following decades of painstaking research, scientists at the Institute of Pharmacology believe they are closing in on an important medical breakthrough.
