Objectives of UCCR
Provide novel chemical libraries to UCSD Researchers
UCSD and SIO have a long history of world class marine and terrestrial natural products chemistry and synthetic organic chemistry, resulting in truly unique and exceptional libraries of organic molecules.
Stimulate Collaborative Research
The role of the UCCR is to partner the unique chemical resources at UCSD with the exceptional biological and biomedical research on campus, thereby stimulating new research collaborations between chemists and biologists.
Provide Enabling Follow-Up Chemistry
Medicinal and natural products chemists associated with the UCCR are available for consultation and collaborative interaction, thereby enabling meaningful pursuit of screening hits generated from the compound resources.
