Our Work


Through the The Center for Drug Discovery and Innovation (cDDI), our renowned UC San Diego researchers are granted the opportunity to collaborate on projects in order to investigate and create novel therapies to improve the trajectory of diseases and other medical conditions. 

The cDDI bridges the whole campus, including Health Sciences, with its schools of pharmacy and medicine; the General Campus, with its physical sciences and school of management; the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, which is a world-class center for marine natural products; and specialized units, such as the San Diego Supercomputing Center. We also link UC San Diego with other UC campuses and local nonprofit and industrial research centers.

Today, cDDI researchers are inventing technologies to accelerate the process of drug discovery, and working on treatments for cancer, heart disease, parasitic infections, schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s, and other unmet needs.

Some of our FDA approved work include riveting drug innovations and device innovations to improve and treat the course of a disease.
