The Center for Drug Discovery conducts multidisciplinary research, supporting its mission to:
The CDD houses over 60 scientists, including faculty researchers, pre- and postdoctoral fellows, and students, in well-equipped, state-of-the-art laboratories to conduct research in the fields of medicinal chemistry, chemical biology, molecular biology, cell biology, tissue culture biochemistry, behavioral studies, proteomics, metabolomics, in vitro characterization, in vivo profiling, chemical synthesis, biophysics, radiochemistry, and imaging.
The Center for Drug Discovery is excited to announce the thirteenth installment of the “Current Trends in Drug Abuse Research” symposium on Friday, May 15, 2015. This annual symposium was originally developed as part of the Center’s National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA)-funded training program as a forum for the presentation of the latest research in this and related fields; a means of increasing public awareness of drug-abuse research; and a mechanism for enhancing the educational experience of our trainees.
The program for this year’s event is still being finalized and will be posted online as soon as it is available. Invited speakers for this year include Dr. Susan Weiss (Director, Extramural Research, National Institute on Drug Abuse), Professor Peter Schiller (Director, Laboratory of Chemical Biology and Peptide Research, Clinical Research Institute of Montreal), Professor Marc Kaufman (Harvard Mclean), and Professor Klaus Miczek (Tufts University).
The event is open to all, but advanced registration is strongly preferred. Please contact Jessica Ehinger (617-373-7866, firstname.lastname@example.org) with your full name, title, and any accommodation requirements in order to reserve a space.
