The Center for Chemical Genomics provides high-throughput screening of extensive small molecule, natural product and siRNA libraries — along with assay development and optimization — for basic biology and drug discovery projects.
Our dedicated staff has years of experience in academic drug discovery and within the pharmaceutical industry, allowing us to provide expert guidance to researchers through every stage of a project.
Our services are available to U-M researchers and to outside academic and industry partners.

Michigan Drug Discovery is now accepting proposals for the next round of funding! MDD Pilot Grants are an excellent way to fund your screening work in the CCG and accelerate the drug discovery process.
Click here for the application.
The deadline for pre-submission meetings is April 12, 2019. A pre-submission meeting is required if this is your first Michigan Drug Discovery (previously CDNM) grant. It strongly recommended for all other PIs. Please complete this form, and we will be in touch to schedule a pre-submission meeting.
Budgets completed in collaboration with the relevant cores must be submitted by April 26, 2019 in the UMMS Competition Space Application (link above).
The final proposal is due May 3, 2019.
Please visit Michigan Drug Discovery's website for more information.
Welcome to our Nathan Dewey, our new Project Coordinator! He'll be working with the CCG and Michigan Drug Discovery to help manage and accelerate the drug discovery program at U-M.
Welcome to our new Project Manager, Rachel Wallace, PhD! She'll be working with the CCG and Michigan Drug Discovery to support a rich and productive drug discovery program at U-M.
A new drug repurposing program was just funded by the U-M Biosciences Initiative. Learn more.
We offer high-throughput screening of extensive small molecule, natural product and siRNA libraries — along with assay development and optimization — for basic biology and drug discovery projects.
We have more than 160,000 diverse small molecule compounds, a unique library of more than 33,000 natural product extracts, an extensive siRNA library and a growing library of FDA-approved compounds for drug repurposing projects.
Explore MScreen, a cost-effective, web-based data storage and analysis tool we developed to help users streamline the hit-to-lead decision process.
