Drugs, Diagnostics, and Devices from UC San Diego Research


The Center for Drug Discovery and Innovation (cDDI) fosters scientific discussions and provides research capabilities and services  to help UC San Diego’s scientists translate advances in technology and basic science to new medical devices, diagnostics, and therapies. Our collective goal is to help patients get better. 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.

The cDDI spans 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 -- a world-class center for marine natural products; and specialized units, such as the San Diego Supercomputing Center. We also are a link point with drug discovery research and resources at UCLA, UC Davis, UC Irvine and UCSF, through the UC Drug Discovery Consortium.
