Mission Statement

Established in 2006, the CDMD at UCLA was built as a result of collaborations among UCLA scientists, clinicians and researchers. Its efforts span from education and outreach to cutting- edge research, drug discovery, clinical trials and care. Funding for the CDMD's remarkable achievements to date has come from a combination of research grants and private philanthropy.

The goals of the CDMD are to:

  • Identify additional disease modifying drug targets;
  • Perform intelligent drug design;
  • Improve access and care in the clinical setting; and
  • Increase clinical trial participation
