The Common Fund’s Molecular Libraries and Imaging program offers biomedical researchers access to the large-scale screening capacity necessary to identify small molecules that can be optimized as chemical probes to study the functions of genes, cells, and biochemical pathways in health and disease. They may also be used by researchers in the public and private sectors to validate new drug targets, which could then move into the drug-development pipeline. Components of the Molecular Libraries program include:
