September 2008, the University of Kansas received a six-year,
$20.2 million research award from the National Institutes of
Health to establish a Specialized Chemistry Center (KU SCC).
As part of the NIH Molecular
Libraries Probe Production Centers Network (MLPCN), the
mission of the KU SCC is to develop probes based on hits uncovered
in NIH screening efforts.
main cores (informatics, synthesis/purification, and administration)
comprise the KU SCC, as well as an additional center-driven
research project which addresses the question of intracellular
target identification for small molecule probes. The
principal investigator and director of the KU SCC is Jeffrey
Aubé, University Distinguished Professor of Medicinal Chemistry.
