Welcome to UICentre
UICentre is a collaborative engagement designed to stimulate and enhance the application of pharmaceutical and translational knowledge to elevate biomedical discovery at the University of Illinois to a level where the benefits of clinical application will enhance human health and benefit society.
"Drug development is collaborative by nature... In the Centre, a multidisciplinary project team will incorporate toxicology, bioavailability, and targeted delivery at the earliest stage of drug discovery."
The UICentre and the Chicago Biomedical Consortium (CBC) have provided matching funds of 20k each for 2 HTS projects. The recipients are:
Arnon Lavie (Biochemistry & Molecular Genetics)
Mike Federle (Center for Pharmaceutical Biotechnology).
UICentre will continue to provide matching funds to CBC HTS awards. These awards are biannual.
Fall deadline for submission is November 1, 2013
