IUPUI Students Changing the Future of Medicine

Chemistry students in the School of Science at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis are working diligently to change the future of medicine.

Using a process called Distributed Drug Discovery (D3), students are synthesizing molecules that might be used in human clinical trials as drug treatments or cures for neglected diseases such as malaria and tuberculosis. The goal of their efforts is to identify, synthesize and test molecules that have not been previously considered to treat these diseases, according to Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis School of Science.

Students certainly are changing the future of medicine one molecule at a time.
