The CWHM will consider collaborative proposals to develop and optimize target-based or phenotypic assays to identify compounds as useful probes for neglected disease programs. Partners may request screening of available compound collections or provide their own. Lead optimization resources are also available.
The Center for World Health and Medicine (CWHM) at Saint Louis University is a not-for-profit research center dedicated to the discovery and development of medicines to treat diseases that predominantly affect the world's poor and underserved patient populations. The CWHM consists of a multidisciplinary team of former pharmaceutical company scientists possessing the necessary skill sets required for small molecule drug discovery.
