COBRE Center for Targeted Therapeutics

The COBRE Center for Targeted Therapeutics (CTT) was created to attract and foster the professional development of talented junior scientists who are motivated to make a difference in the treatment of debilitating diseases.

Collaborative Research

Targeted therapeutics is research that seeks to develop new and more effective classes of drugs against various diseases by aiming these drugs at molecular and cellular targets that play a key role in the disease. This topic was chosen because of its societal impact, the emergence of common technologies driving therapeutics research in different disease areas and the presence of a critical core of senior faculty with broad acumen and transdisciplinary vision in targeted therapeutics.

Resource Cores

The Center for Targeted Therapeutics includes three Resource Core Facilities: the Functional Genomics Core, the Drug Design and Synthesis Core, and the Microscopy and Flow Cytometry Core. The director of each core facility can provide expert scientific advice in project development, along with technological support.

Research Projects

The Center for Targeted Therapeutics currently supports four research projects led by junior faculty members with expertise in cancer biology and genomics, signal transduction, metabolic diseases and nanotechnology-based drug delivery. Through pilot projects and collaborative studies, CTT research will encompass targeted therapeutics for multiple diseases. Explore our current and prior research projects.
