A major goal of Pharmacology research is to discover novel therapeutic strategies for the treatment of disease. Many researchers at Michigan Pharmacology are interested translating their basic research ideas into the development of novel therapeutics. In collaboration with the Center for the Development of New Medicines and the Center for Chemical Genomics we are screening for novel chemical tools that bind to newly appreciated drug targets for use in validating novel ideas for drugs. This research encompasses the disciplines of chemistry, biochemistry and cell biology to yield novel chemicals that may represent new drug leads.
