Researchers seek disease-fighting molecules

RESEARCH | A new five-year, $11.2 million federal grant will help UD scientists build a network of biomedical researchers in the region as they work to discover new ways to study cancer, Crohn’s, Huntington’s and other serious diseases.

The grant, from the National Institutes of Health’s Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) program, supports five related projects.

“Through this center, we will be discovering new molecules that can be used to study, and ultimately to treat, human disease,” says principal investigator Joseph Fox, professor of chemistry and biochemistry.

Because COBRE is designed not only to support specific projects but also to help institutions build new research areas and develop regional collaborations, the UD scientists will be working with partners, including the National Cancer Institute and the Nemours Center for Childhood Cancer Research.
