Center for Drug Discovery



The Center for Drug Discovery seeks out and advances promising drug projects from the Washington University community, deploying key activities:

  • Identification & Prioritization of Promising Projects
  • Education & Project Strategy
  • Implementation & Project Management
  • Facilitation of External Partnering

The task of identifying projects is conducted with established University partners, including the Institute of Clinical & Translation Sciences (ICTS), the Skandalaris Center for Interdisciplinary Innovation & Entrepreneurship and the Siteman Cancer Center.

The Center works closely with the Center for Research Innovation in Biotechnology (CRIB), which evaluates academic and commercial participation in drug discovery.
