Biological Discovery through Chemical Innovation

Biological Discovery through Chemical Innovation


The Biological Discovery through Chemical Innovation (BDCI) initiative is a collaborative initiative between the Department of Pharmacology and Chemical Biology in the Emory University School of Medicine and the Department of Chemistry in the Emory College of Arts and Sciences.  BDCI sits at a key intersection of biology, chemistry, and human health in both the discovery and training of new researchers.  It deepens and facilitates the rapidly developing synergy that already exists at Emory among the three areas.  Its aim is to accelerate the development of the next generation of research tools, effective and safe drugs, and diagnostic agents.
