Drug Discovery

The Arizona Center for Drug Discovery (ACDD) serves as a vibrant organizational hub connecting the University of Arizona in Tucson and Phoenix with partnering organizations to advance academic-based drug discovery throughout the state. ACDD promises to energize the drug discovery process across campus, connect UA researchers with partners in the pharmaceutical industry, and help push innovative technologies developed in Tucson from the lab to the patient’s bedside. The center provides state-of-the- art equipment that will help drug researchers move rapidly through the discovery process, identifying the most promising drug compounds before moving into extensive and costly preclinical studies and, later, clinical trials.
