Funds raised in this campaign will be directed to three primary goals. First, we need to defray the costs of the database system. We have been working with Collaborative Drug Discovery for the last four years and have found their system to be flexible, easy-to-use, and highly functional for the collaborative nature of drug discovery. Second, we intend to provide seed funding for key laboratory experiments in support of consortium members' projects. Often, key capabilities (such as synthetic chemistry) or bits of data that are important for making good drug discovery decision (such as solubility, or metabolic stability) can be slightly out of reach of some academic research groups. As a group, consortium members will collaborate and determine priorities for these research expenditures. Third, we intend to get the word out about this collaborative model by a variety of means, including publications, social media, and professional networking.
