University of Michigan changes name of medicine development center
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — The University of Michigan is changing the name of its center that works to help develop new medicines.
The Ann Arbor school says the Center for the Discovery of New Medicines, which was established in 2012, will now be known as Michigan Drug Discovery. The center is a collaboration across the university to find, fund and assist drug discovery projects that originate from faculty research.
The initiative also includes a new website that serves as a clearinghouse of information and resources for University of Michigan researchers and external partners. The website features a roadmap for the drug discovery process and details the university resources available at every stage.
Michigan Drug Discovery will continue an existing program of early-stage drug discovery grants. The awards are up to $50,000 each.
