Twice per year, the Michigan Drug Discovery provides grant awards of up to $75,000 each for drug discovery research in all therapeutic areas.
Preference will be given to studies on novel drug targets with a clear medical need and commercial viability.
The expectation is that most of the awarded funds will be used in the following U-M core laboratories to accelerate the discovery process:
- Center for Chemical Genomics
- Center for Structural Biology
- Vahlteich Medicinal Chemistry Core
- Pharmacokinetics Core
- Natural Products Discovery Core
Up to $5,000 of award can be used for work and supplies outside of the pre-approved cores.
