The Centre for Collaborative Drug Research is an Extra-Departmental Unit (EDU) of the University of Toronto. A multidisciplinary initiative bringing together the Faculty of Medicine, the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, the CCDR is designed to spur networking, collaboration and innovation in drug research.
The CCDR is actively involved in developing new models for collaboration and innovation with the pharmaceutical industry and other partners.
The Centre’s initial areas of research focus include: New Targets in Neuroscience, Natural Products in Health & Disease, Pharmacogenomics & Drug Safety, and New Approaches to Anti-infective Therapy. We anticipate that our areas of focus will broaden in the future.
