UICentre is the academic drug discovery initiative at UIC. We are a campus-wide program centered on collaborative engagement designed to stimulate the application of pharmaceutical and translational knowledge in order to generate novel therapeutic compounds.
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 primary purpose of UICentre is to stimulate and enhance the application of chemical, pharmaceutical, and translational knowledge to elevate biomedical discoveries at the University of Illinois to a level where the benefits of clinical application will enhance human health and benefit society.
