Johns Hopkins Drug Discovery Group

Overview of Services

Located in the new Biotechnology Park, Johns Hopkins Drug Discovery Program was created in 2010 with the mission of identifying novel drug targets arising from JHU faculty’s research and translating them into new drug therapies for a wide range of human disorders.   

The multidisciplinary team of scientists has provided the Johns Hopkins community with core expertise in drug discovery research including medicinal chemistry, screening assay development, drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics, animal pharmacology/toxicology, and the knowledge necessary to bring novel drugs to the clinic.
