Chemical Synthesis and Organic Drug Lead Development

Given the increased demand for customized chemical syntheses of drug leads and biological probes on the IUPUI campus, the Department of Chemistry & Chemical Biology of the School of Science has joined forces with the IU Simon Cancer Center to create a core facility for Chemical Synthesis & Organic Drug Lead Development to expedite the translational research and drug development efforts of cancer researchers.

The goal of the Synthetic Core is to support the synthetic and medicinal chemistry needs of IUSCC investigators as well as other academic entities within IUPUI and throughout the state; the core is also available to the broader life sciences industrial community of central Indiana and elsewhere on a contract basis.
