Center for Molecular Innovation and Drug Discovery

Design. Create. Innovate.


Discovering drugs to treat human disease requires an extraordinary commitment of talent, resources, and time. The Center for Molecular Innovation and Drug Discovery seeks philanthropic support that will strengthen critical resources and reduce the time it takes to bring new treatments to society.

Your philanthropy supports:

  • Seed funding to obtain strong preliminary data in the critical early stages of the discovery process
  • Endowed professorships to assist our efforts to recruit and retain preeminent faculty
  • Fellowships for talented research scientists from the undergraduate to postdoctoral levels
  • Acquisition of state-of-the-art research instrumentation and equipment
  • Outreach and educational initiatives such as symposia, workshops, and lectures
