For selected compounds (by ourselves or in collaboration), we are devising synthetic methods to probe structure–activity relationships (SAR) and to obtain larger quantities of material for biological evaluation, including toxicity, pharmacokinetic and efficacy studies in animal models, which we will carry out in due course. Molecules of interest include largazoles and apratoxins, which we discovered and...
Researchers in the UF College of Pharmacy teamed with collaborators in Singapore to study a novel drug candidate with marine origins as a new method to prevent or treat vision loss.
The third UF Drug Discovery Symposium brought a record-breaking 180 participants, including many of Florida’s major players in the drug discovery field, to Hotel Indigo in Gainesville on April 25–26. The symposium — hosted by the University of Florida College of Pharmacy’s Center for Natural Products, Drug Discovery and Development, or CNPD3 — featured a keynote...
Luesch presented on the expanding chemical space for drug discovery at the conference in Kuwait City.
The 10 medicinal chemistry faculty currently serve as principal investigators on 18 different federally funded grants worth more than $18.4 million.
Known as the Maximizing Investigators’ Research Award, the grant will fund several of Huigens’ research projects, including efforts to develop compounds that will eliminate bacterial biofilm-associated infections.
Led by principal investigator, Rob Huigens, Ph.D., an assistant professor of medicinal chemistry, the grant aims to establish a drug discovery pipeline to generate and identify new small molecules that possess anticancer activities.
The researchers found a more efficient way to harvest the UV-absorbing amino acid known as shinorine, which marine organisms like cyanobacteria and macroalgae produce.
A logo brings a brand to life and is the signature mark that helps convey the College of Pharmacy’s connection to the University of Florida, a national leader in higher education. Consistent and constant usage of the UF College of Pharmacy logo strengthens the brand. A list of official UF-approved logos for the College of Pharmacy is provided below....
