Institute for Therapeutics Discovery and Development

MSI is providing resources and user support to the Institute for Therapeutics Discovery and Development, a unit of the College of Pharmacy. The Institute’s research is focused on medicinal chemistry, high-throughput screening (HTS), lead discovery, combinatorial chemistry, and chemical process development. Current projects include NIH-funded development of non-hormonal male contraceptive projects, pilot-scale chemical libraries, and development of a Center in Chemical Methodology and Libraries. MSI hosts the servers for and supports two major software applications for ITDD, ActivityBase (IDBS, UK) for HTS and chemical lead optimization and Pipeline Pilot (Accelyrs, CA) for data manipulation for HTS and chemistry applications. In addition, they use many of the computational chemistry capabilities hosted at MSI.
