Harnessing the energy of collaboration to improve human health

The Medicinal Chemistry Collaborative is an interdisciplinary network of scientists at the University of North Carolina Greensboro and the surrounding Triad region. We are united by a bold agenda, which is to apply our research to develop effective therapeutics for cancer and infectious disease.  Equally as important, we are training the next generation of scientists, through involvement in hands on research with undergraduate and graduate students.  Working together and engaging with the greater community (locally, nationally, and internationally), we are committed making new scientific discoveries and translating those findings into tangible strategies for improving human health.
