Center for Drug Discovery

The Baylor University Center for Drug Discovery was established in the Spring of 1999 as a means to gather together members of the Baylor community (faculty, undergraduate and graduate students, postdocs, and technicians) with research interests in areas loosely related to drug discovery. The activities of the Center are focused upon building bridges – between research groups and faculty in different academic departments within Baylor; between faculty at Baylor University and colleagues at nearby Universities and medical centers; between academic researchers and industry; and between student researchers (undergraduate and graduate), postdoctoral fellows, technicians, and faculty. Over the past five years the Center for Drug Discovery has organized a variety of symposia and workshops, catalyzed research collaboration between faculty, and established the beginning of a core instrumentation pool.
