Center for Drug Discovery Innovation

Connecting Scientists, Enabling Discovery

Who are we?

Too many people and families desperately need help with serious diseases like cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer’s. We started the Center for Drug Discovery Innovation (CDDI) to help discover new treatments and cures. We work in two main ways:

  • From discovery to cure. The CCDI helps UC San Diego researches build and advance drug discovery projects by providing expert advice, facilitating access to research resources, and networking them with other researchers on and beyond the campus.

  • Innovating drug discovery. CDDI scientists and engineers invent new ways to speed the development of needed medications by overcoming technical and business obstacles in the drug discovery process .
