The Drug Development Core offers a comprehensive portfolio of resources to assess novel compounds. To date the core has collaborated with many faculty members to facilitate grant submissions, facilitate faculty interactions for those with similar research interests.
In cases where coordinating with other services within the Clinical and Translational Science Institute would benefit a study, the drug development core interacts with the clinical research navigators and other core directors.
"More than just a laboratory that people have access to, or assistance in submitting a grant, it’s developing a mechanism so that faculty are aware of the different resources that exist at UB and Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, so their grant applications can be even stronger and they can build new collaborations. People who may be used to working independently can begin working together."
