Center/Program Highlights: FLORIDA DRUG DISCOVERY ACCELERATION PROGRAM

The Florida Drug Discovery Acceleration Program is funded by the state of Florida for the 2014-2015 fiscal year through the Department of Health. This program allows for Torrey Pines Institute for Molecular Studies (TPIMS) to share its large collection of compound libraries and expertise to Florida Institutions to accelerate drug discovery and commercialization statewide. Through this program, these compound libraries and services are provided at no cost to our collaborators at universities and non-profit institutes within the state of Florida.


TPIMS COMPOUND LIBRARIES

The TPIMS compound library collection currently consists of over 30 million drug-like compounds and billions of peptides. All of the compound libraries are arranged in the positional scanning format which allows for the testing of millions of compounds using only hundreds of samples. Because of the capability to screen the TPIMS compound libraries with fewer samples, these libraries can be screened in virtually any assay with no adaptation requirements.
