Join us for a conversation addressing the evolving needs of drug discovery and development; identifying and characterizing drug targets, development of high through-put screening assays, lead candidate identification and medicinal chemistry, formulation/in vivo testing/IND enabling studies, start-up, and licensing.

Success on this path requires many resources – collaborating with colleagues and partners who share a common vision; knowing which resources are available to UT Austin researchers; and leveraging complementary strengths to achieve success. This is what keeps the University of Texas at the forefront of scientific research.
