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

y those that are beyond the scope of standard biopharmaceutical practice. The CBC will focus on therapeutic opportunities in high-risk, under-represented areas to advance the discovery of compounds active against novel molecular and genetic cancer targets.

Sambucetti will serve as the overall principal investigator of SRI's CBC program and the Comprehensive Chemical Biology Screening Center. She will collaborate with Mary Tanga, Ph.D., an SRI senior director of medicinal chemistry, who will lead the Chemical Diversity Center, and Keith Laderoute, Ph.D., an SRI distinguished scientist, who will lead the Specialized Applications Center.

As the principal investigator of the Comprehensive Chemical Biology Screening Center, Sambucetti was invited to join the CBC Steering Committee, an NCI advisory panel that will work to ensure that CBC Centers are efficiently bridging the gap between basic scientific findings and NCI-supported clinical research.

To optimize high-quality leads and accelerate the drug discovery process, SRI will be working with BioComputing Group, Inc., a developer of computational screening, hit-to-lead, and lead optimization tools with particular emphasis on structure-guided drug discovery. These tools employ novel molecular descriptors that are derived from active compounds within the target family and from the structure of the target protein that can be applied to the evaluation of compounds from a library as well as compounds not yet synthesized. BioComputing Group, Inc. (www.BioPredict.com) has a significant track record of success in applying its tools in a hypothesis-driven paradigm to accelerate drug discovery efforts of its collaborators and clients, having placed multiple compounds into clinic with significantly reduced numbers of compounds screened and synthesized and with significantly shortened time frames.
