Center for Blood-Brain Barrier Research
The Center's mission is to discover and develop novel therapeutics that will advance drug therapy in diseases affecting the central nervous system. The Center will foster research to characterize new drug targets based on understanding of both receptor and transport mechanisms and of metabolic pathways.
By encouraging collaboration with colleagues across School of Pharmacy departments, the Center will raise the pharmacy school's research profile, enhance the competitiveness of Center members for extramural funding and increase the attractiveness of the TTUHSC School of Pharmacy to prospective faculty members.
