National Cancer Institute names Emory to nationwide NCI chemical biology consortium
Date:8/12/2009

rol," says William J. Todd, president and chief executive officer of the Georgia Cancer Coalition. "By supporting Emory's participation in this national cancer drug discovery initiative, we are reinforcing the state's comprehensive cancer control plan goal to accelerate improvements in cancer treatment. This designation brings us yet one step closer to making Georgia one of the nation's premier states for cancer control."

"As a molecular oncologist and a cancer clinician, I am very pleased with this opportunity for Emory's involvement in a national NCI consortium to speed drug discovery," says Khuri. "This is a very exciting time for cancer research, and I am optimistic this consortium will result in significant research advances that soon will benefit patients with particularly challenging types of cancer."

As a member of the national consortium, the Emory center will join forces with the NCI and other national centers for project-team based accelerated cancer drug discovery operations from target identification, high throughput screening, all the way through clinical trials. It will be funded through a contractual agreement mechanism with the NCI.

In 2005 the National Institutes of Health (NIH) awarded Emory $9 million in the pilot phase of the National Molecular Libraries Screening Center Network (MLSCN). The network uses high-tech screening methods on huge libraries of small molecular compounds to identify probes as promising molecular research tools.

Emory's CBC selection by the NCI built on Emory's already established Chemical Biology Discovery Center and its experience in MLSCN. The Emory Chemical Biology Discovery Center is an interdisciplinary collaboration among research departments in Emory School of Medicine and Emory College. The Center also uses high-throughput technologies to screen libraries of hundreds of thousands of small molecule compounds against promising molecular targets identified by Emory scientists
