December 1, 2007

Drug Discovery news has published an article on CDD’s work with the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. From the article:

A collaboration to identify and develop drugs for resistant strains of malaria draws on an unusual combination of resources: U.S. Army research from 1946 plus 21st century informatics and lab technology.

The joint work on malaria began about two years ago between Collaborative Drug Discovery Inc., (CDD) and the Department of Chemical Biology and Therapeutics at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. CDD created a database of over 12,000 molecules from the 61-year-old, two-volume “A Survey of Malaria Drugs,” edited by Frederick Y. Wiselogle.
