Summit Information

The Arizona Center for Drug Discovery was created to catalyze new drug treatment discoveries by connecting the right people with the right projects at the right time. By translating current research into commercializable opportunities, the Arizona Center for Drug Discovery aims to create a portfolio which spans biologic targets, therapeutic areas and modalities. The Center is advised by a Scientific Advisory Board, a highly collaborative, interdisciplinary group who oversees all of the Center's initiatives.
