Baylor University's Center for Drug Discovery will host its first public symposium at 3 p.m. Friday, March 24, in the first floor lobby of Marrs McLean Science Building on the Baylor campus. The symposium will feature the research of current faculty and student participants in the center, which is located in Baylor's department of chemistry and biochemistry.

"The Center for Drug Discovery has not had anything where we've invited people from the outside to come and see what is going on in our laboratories," said Dr. Bob Kane, director of the center and assistant professor of chemistry. "This symposium provides an opportunity for faculty and students to make public presentations of their research. This is an excellent chance for the community to see what everyone is doing."

Refreshments will be provided before and after faculty oral presentations, which will be from 4 to 5 p.m.

The Center for Drug Discovery was established in the summer of 1999 to encourage the pursuit of research activities which advance the frontiers of science in the area loosely defined as drug discovery.
