SRI announces selection by the National Cancer Institute as a Chemical Biology Consortium center
Date:7/22/2009

Menlo Park, Calif.July 22 , 2009SRI International, an independent nonprofit research and development organization, announced today that SRI's Center for Cancer Research was selected by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) for a leading role in the newly-formed "Chemical Biology Consortium" (CBC), a collaborative drug discovery partnership focused on advancing new cancer therapeutics active against novel molecular and genetic cancer targets. Based on its track record of cancer drug discovery and development, SRI was chosen to lead three of the CBC's research and development centers: Comprehensive Chemical Biology Screening, Chemical Diversity, and Specialized Applications.

SRI has decades of experience in successfully identifying, developing and advancing novel compounds into clinical evaluation. SRI's Center for Cancer Research, comprised of biologists and medicinal chemists with expertise in fundamental and applied cancer research, focuses on the study of tumor microenvironment, tumor metabolism, and aberrant signaling pathways that cause cancer. Through collaborative partnerships, SRI's Center for Cancer Research has been successful in generating an extensive drug pipeline translating discoveries into beneficial treatments. SRI's drug discovery process, guided by a combination of biological screens and computational methods, will be a key component of the NCI Chemical Biology Consortium program.

"SRI is proud to be selected to join this innovative NCI program and to continue our long-standing support of NCI's mission to discover, develop, and bring new drugs to cancer patients," said Lidia Sambucetti, Ph.D., senior director of SRI's Center for Cancer Research. "Our multidisciplinary research team will bring proven expertise in fundamental and applied cancer research, backed by SRI's fully-integrated preclinical capabilities."

The goal of the Chemical Biology Consortium is to discover and develop new cancer therapeutics, particularl
