We have the dual vision of identifying novel chemical leads targeted to disease-related proteins, and of training the next generation of investigators. Our Center has already initiated multiple joint research activities between Emory College and the School of Medicine. To achieve our vision this synergy must be greatly strengthened. At the same time our participation as a node in the national network of small molecule screening and discovery centers, the MLSCN, broadens our reach well beyond Emory University.

We value coordinated, effective teamwork dedicated to making a meaningful contribution to solving some of our nation’s most thorny health problems. We enjoy the challenges of traversing unmapped territory, and are motivated by our belief that technology and science can be harnessed for the relief from pain and suffering, and can thereby improve access to a higher quality of life.
