Mission & Goals

The Molecular Therapeutics Initiative assists and accelerates investigator-initiated drug discovery & development projects at UTMB. Its internal and external advisory panels provide critical guidance and facilitate access to state-of-the-art resources to streamline efforts to discover novel therapeutic agents and accelerate their transition into clinical trials.


This Initiative will:

  • help researchers develop new, successful, and funded therapeutic programs at UTMB.
  • sponsor educational seminars, workshops, and courses on innovative approaches to drug discovery & development.
  • develop critical campus resources for drug discovery and development.
  • facilitate rapid access to state-of-the-art resources.
