NCI Commissions SRI for $7.9M to Conduct Chemical Analysis of Potential Drugs

  • SRI International received a $7.9 million contract from the NCI to conduct analytical chemistry evaluations of its anticancer drugs and dosage formulations.

    “By conducting in-depth chemical analysis of promising drug candidates, we can help expedite the flow of new anticancer discoveries to the clinic,” says Jennie Wang, analytical chemistry program director in SRI’s Biosciences Division. “Analytical chemistry data can help improve the safety and consistency of drug development at all stages of research.”

    SRI points out that chemical data such as identity, strength, quality, and stability of a drug provides a better definition of the substance or dosage formulation, leading to safer and more effective therapies.
