Center for Drug Design



Even before The Center for Drug Design came together as it is today, our dedicated scientists were working on ways to develop new and better drugs to combat diseases that rob people of their health, vitality, and lives. Scientists have created essential medicines that enable doctors to treat patients in hospitals and clinics world wide, giving millions of people and their families another chance to live better, normal, lives.

Dr. Robert Vince, who has had a long and successful career in anti-cancer, anti-microbial, and anti-viral research, envisioned a place where scientists could work together creatively. As Director of the Center for Drug Design, he has assembled a team of people committed to just such an idea. With your support, we hope to continue to reach our goals.
