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.

Do you have a screening project you would like to receive funding for? Great news! The Michigan Drug Discovery (MDD) is accepting applications for its Project Grants ($100,000 per year for up to three years) and Screening Grants ($75,000 for one year or $100,000 for two years). A pre-submission meeting with the MDD director is encouraged prior to applying; all submissions are due by May 17, 2022.
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 250,000 diverse small molecule compounds, a unique library of more than 45,000 natural product extracts, an extensive siRNA library and a growing library of 7,000-plus FDA-approved drugs and clinical 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.
