Indianapolis, Ind. - The Indiana Biosciences Research Institute (IBRI), a leading translational science institute, today announced an agreement with Collaborative Drug Discovery, Inc. (CDD) that will help it translate disease hypotheses into potential therapies that improve patient health outcomes.

The IBRI will add CDD Vault®, a hosted software that provides a secure, central storage for chemical and biological data, to its drug discovery resources. “CDD Vault is the clear industry standard at private companies and within the university setting,” said Alan Palkowitz, PhD, president and CEO of the IBRI. “As an institute that prides itself in bringing stakeholders together, this collaboration solidifies our role as a key strategic partner with industry and academic centers to find innovative solutions to some of the most challenging biomedical problems.”

CDD Vault is one of many technologies the IBRI is accessing to expand its capabilities for molecular innovation. What makes the IBRI’s agreement with CDD unique is that the IBRI will be able to use CDD Vault within its research labs and to also share with external collaborators.

“We are thrilled to work with the IBRI as its scientists translate their findings into novel patient therapies,” said Barry Bunin, PhD, CEO of CDD. “IBRI includes a number of leading researchers from the Big Pharma world.  This collaboration will help the IBRI enhance its chemical infrastructure, improve tracking of its drug discovery progress and enable innovation in the life sciences ecosystem.”
