The Colorado Center for Drug Discovery (C2D2) is part of a State of Colorado-sponsored initiative (HB-08-1001) to promote economic development through the advancement of bioscience research. C2D2 is a unique preclinical drug discovery organization that is capable of advancing drug discovery programs through collaborative research.
"Chemical leads are discovered, drugs are invented"
In the quest to successfully discover and commercialize new drugs, two factors are paramount: validation of the biological target and creation of chemical matter that elicit the desired response. C2D2 creates the proprietary compounds for collaborators which are capable of advancing a project from genetic proof of concept to pharmacological reality. The result is that researchers are more effective at attracting federal or commercial support for their programs.
