John S. Dunn Gulf Coast Consortium for Chemical Genomics
The John S. Dunn, GCC for Chemical Genomics (GCC CG) was organized in 2003 to address the growing need among Gulf Coast investigators for a centralized capability to support high throughput screening technologies. Many Gulf Coast institution research laboratories were engaged in screening projects but they were generally too small to be effective. To reduce the duplication of effort and to expand the screening capabilities, the GCC CG was organized as a research consortium to bring together scientists interested in this area of research with the aim of developing an inter-institutional academic drug discovery program.
