Date:8/20/2009

CBC consortium," said John A. Secrist III, Ph.D., president and CEO of Southern Research. "We look forward to partnering with the federal government as it accelerates cancer drug discovery."

As a Comprehensive Chemical Biology Center, Southern Research will focus on numerous aspects of preclinical drug research from target discovery, assay development, high throughput screening, structural/computational chemistry, and biology, through lead optimization and preclinical development. In addition Southern Research has an extensive compound library that will be made available for the CBC effort.

Dr. Knight says that work is expected to begin immediately.

About the Chemical Biology Consortium

The CBC will establish an integrated network of chemical biologists, molecular oncologists, and compound screening centers from government, academia, and eventually from industry. The drug discovery strategy of the CBC is to expand current NCI programs by providing a coordinated focus on therapeutic opportunities in high-risk, under-represented areas, significantly advancing the discovery of novel compounds active against specific molecular and genetic cancer targets. CBC efforts will include recruiting extramural investigators with specialized expertise in novel discovery platforms as well as medicinal chemistry, chemical biology, molecular oncology, and other areas of drug discovery and development. The CBC will be centrally managed to coordinate the selection of targets and screening fo
