UC Berkeley Small Molecule Drug Discovery Center (UCBDDC)

The UC Berkeley Small Molecule Drug Discovery Center’s main goal is to support translational research by providing access to a library of over 100,000 small molecule and natural product compounds and expertise in assay development. It supports compound storage, dispensing, sample management and execution of screens using a variety of readouts (absorbance, fluorescence, luminescence, imaging-based) for biochemical and cell-based assays as well as automation for following up on interesting hits in dose response to find useful compounds for discovery and human trials. It plans to be operational in mid-2019.
