Welch Foundation gives $1.6 million for drug discovery research
Date:9/11/2007

lch Foundation and others support this important chemical design effort," Pettit said.

"With this gift, the Welch Foundation not only opens new opportunities for both collaboration and discovery based in chemistry, but also continues its rich history of support for chemistry in Texas," said Kathleen S. Matthews, dean of natural sciences at Rice University and chair of the oversight committee of the Gulf Coast Consortia. "The GCC community deeply appreciates the generous support of the Welch Foundation in this new and exciting endeavor in chemical genomics."

Established in 2006 with a $2.7 million gift from the John S. Dunn Foundation, the John S. Dunn Gulf Coast Consortium for Chemical Genomics gives academic investigators at GCC institutions access to technologies and resources traditionally limited to the pharmaceutical industry, including sophisticated robotic screening systems and very large collections of compounds and reagents. "Chemical genomics" is an emerging field that combines high-throughput molecular screening techniques and the vast quantity of information generated by the mapping of all the genes present in humans and other organisms to give novel insights into biological systems and provide a new foundation for drug discovery.

"From the beginning we've had a very active interest in how best to design and create the molecules we put into our screens -- what some would call the 'chemical' part of chemical genomics," Davies said. "That's why we're so grateful to the Welch Foundation for this commitment to advancing computational and synthetic chemistry, which is going to enable large numbers of scientists to discover new molecules that will be potentially very useful in the treatment of diseases and the process of discovery in biological laboratories."/p>
