Medicinal Chemistry

The Medicinal Chemistry Shared Resource (MCSR) provides medicinal chemistry support to investigators at the OSUCCC – James and to other academic and commercial institutions.

MCSR integrates the expertise of multiple disciplines, including synthetic and process chemistry, instrumental analysis and molecular pharmacology, to provide medicinal chemistry support to investigators. The goal of MCSR is to provide many aspects of medicinal chemistry services, including chemistry consultations, sample purity analyses and preparations, and custom synthesis to interested investigators to identify new therapeutic targets and/or biomarkers of drug activity. From a long-term perspective, the MCSR will translate basic science findings from investigators into small-molecule agents for testing individual hypotheses, adding an important dimension to translating basic science to the clinic.
