Screening Programs and Support

The TxSACT Program includes three discovery programs: 1) the chemistry-based New Drug Discovery Program, 2) the pharmacology–based Combinatorial Drug Discovery Program, and 3) the molecular biology–based Therapeutic Targets Discovery Program. These programs are designed to support the full range of experimental approaches being used by Texas’s cancer researchers to address the challenge of developing new treatments for cancer. These drug discovery programs are supported by three cores: (1) administration, (2) bioinformatics, and (3) education and information exchange.
