Excellent Center for Drug Discovery (ECDD) was set up under the collaborative efforts of Thailand Center of Excellence for Life Sciences (TCELS), Faculty of Medicine Ramathibodi Hospital and Faculty of Science Mahidol University which operate in the field of pharmaceutical re- search/drug discovery. ECDD develops the tools specifically for understanding the bio- pharmaceutical process, molecular basis, and gene therapies. The operating center equipped with high throughput and high content screening (HTS/HCS) automation provides the research community with cost-advantage, high-technology instrumentation, and services. HTS is an important step in the target drug discovery and involves the miniaturization and automation of bioassays that thousands of compounds can be tested. We also ultimately become the depository center for Thai natural compounds together with the therapeutic mechanism study to prevent and treat diseases for maximum research development with benefits to the global health.
We support biomedical research by consulting, designing, optimizing and running high throughput assays that help to achieve your experiment goals. ECDD laboratory will operate as a fee-for-service facility with an industry perspective to accelerate drug discovery efforts at the lowest cost structure.
ECDD operates as a collaborative resource center. Our mission is to accelerate drug discovery research by enabling efficient high-throughput screening tools for compound targets and phenotypic cellular assays that answer the questions of scientific interest.
