Developing Drugs For Cancer Research

February 27, 2020

The Medicines for All Institute at VCU (M4ALL) is an internationally distinctive facility equipped to manufacture large volumes of targeted therapeutics for the university to conduct research as well as develop new lower cost methods for the preparation of global health drugs. Through a collaborative effort led by Frank Gupton, Ph.D., and Keith Ellis, Ph.D., M4ALL can directly provide scientists at VCU Massey Cancer Center with new and existing drugs they need for a wide range of cancer studies. This partnership will give Massey researchers a new means for translating and advancing their scientific discoveries from the laboratory into clinical trials.
