C center. Fu is professor of pharmacology, hematology & medical oncology in Emory University School of Medicine and a co-leader of the Discovery and Developmental Therapeutics Program of the Emory Winship Cancer Institute.

"This consortium will allow the NCI and the consortium members to pursue innovative strategies and dedicate resources to interrogating new signaling pathways and promising but difficult targets for the rapid discovery and development of clinically viable new compounds that might not otherwise be developed. Examples include pediatric cancer targets," says Fu.

The Emory center is anchored by investigators within the Emory Winship Cancer Institute and integrated with drug discovery and development capabilities of researchers throughout campus. Co-principal investigators of the Emory CBC Center are Fadlo Khuri, MD, deputy director for clinical and translational research in Emory Winship Cancer Institute and professor and chair of hematology & medical oncology, and Dennis Liotta, PhD, Emory professor of chemistry.

"Emory has a strong foundation of team science and collaboration, high throughput screening expertise and a solid record of success in the NIH Molecular Libraries Screening Centers Network," says Liotta. "We have a team of assay biologists, screening scientists and informatics experts working side by side with medicinal chemists. Our record of drug discovery and partnerships with pharmaceutical companies show that we have the experience and expertise to serve as national leaders in cancer drug discovery."

The Georgia Cancer Coalition (GCC) is providing matching funds for the Emory CBC Center of approximately $750,000. Emory will provide other matching funds for the Center. The Georgia Research Alliance provided initial support for the Chemical Biology Discovery Center.

"We are proud and delighted that the National Cancer Institute has once again reached out to Georgia for leadership in cancer cont
