MCMP Areas of Research
The Department of Medicinal Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology has developed a diverse set of research programs spanning from the physical sciences to the biological sciences, but always having a molecular basis and an emphasis on disease or medicine. Research in the Department is focused in eight different multidisciplinary areas. Five areas represent general scientific approaches (click for detailed descriptions and lists of faculty):
Students and faculty working in these areas frequently interact with members of the Bindley Bioscience Center, the Birck Nanotechnology Center, the Discover Park Cyber Center, the Markey Center for Structural Biology, and the Purdue University Interdisciplinary Life Sciences Graduate Program (PULSe), including members of the Biomolecular Structure and Biophysics training group and members of the Chemical Biology Training Group.
The three other multidisciplinary research areas are grouped around related scientific questions (click for detailed descriptions and lists of faculty):
Students and faculty working in these areas frequently interact with members of the Discovery Park Oncological Sciences Center, the Purdue University Center for Cancer Research, the PULSe Chemical Biology training group, the PULSe Integrative Neuroscience training group, and the PULSe Molecular Signaling and Cancer Biology training group.
The Indiana Database for University Research Expertise (INDURE) is now online! With this tool, you can search for Purdue faculty members and their research activities by entering relevant keywords, or alternatively you can use a simple navigation mechanism to find them by specifying fields of study.
