About the Center

Our Mission

The mission of the center is to build a differentiated infrastructure for Drug Discovery, aligned with university strategic goals, to catalyze new drug treatment options for patients, by translating current research into commercializable opportunities across disease areas, therapeutic modalities and target classes. The center supports UA investigators in their drug discovery research efforts, and serves as an alliance management and drug discovery strategy resource. The center develops external partnerships to ensure increased success of attaining marketed drugs by marrying the key expertise of academia with resources and platforms of industry.
