Center for Drug Discovery and Innovation (CDDI)
Florida Center of Excellence for Drug Discovery and Innovation
USF's Florida Center of Excellence for Drug Discovery and Innovation, CDDI, provides researchers access to specialized equipment not available in most research laboratories that is important for validating protein drug targets and the development of small molecule inhibitors. The CDDI instrumentation cores offer a wide choice of analytical methods with application to the general analysis of proteins and cells. Core facilities include high field NMR, proteomics, protein expression/purification, cell biology, natural products drug discovery/compound analysis and screening.
Laboratory facilities on the third floor of the IDRB offer:
- High field NMR
- cell biology
- natural product-derived drug discovery/compound analysis and screening
