Small-molecule drugs -- which target a specific protein or enzyme that modulates a biochemical or cellular process and have the potential to alter disease states -- have traditionally been highly effective but are difficult to identify through standard, high-throughput screening.

QB3 is a cooperative effort among private industry and more than 200 scientists at UCSF, UC Berkeley and UC Santa Cruz. The institute harnesses the quantitative sciences of information technology, imaging and engineering to integrate and enhance scientific understanding of biological systems at all levels, enabling scientists to tackle problems that have been previously unapproachable.
