We help you make informed decisions about the discovery, development, and refinement of therapeutics.
Explore the ways we can work together:


mass spectrometer


Bioanalysis and Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometry


Mass spectrometry (LC-MS) analysis of drug/compound concentration in biological specimens. We developed assays to measure over 2300 compounds, including several commercially available drugs. We work closely with the

Center for Discovery of New Medicines to accelerate drug discovery.


Lead Optimization image


Lead Optimization


Microsomal Stability, Metabolite ID, Protein Binding, Blood/Plasma Ratio.  Drug Metabolism studies, including Enzyme Identification, Inhibition, and Induction. We work closely with the Vahlteich Medicinal Chemistry Core to support lead optimization projects.




Pre-Clinical Studies


We perform oral bioavailability, pharmacokinetic, and biodistribution studies in animal models. We access state-of-the-art facilities at UM In Vivo Animal Core to facilitate healthy and disease models for a range of drug discovery and development efforts.

Clinical Studies


We assist with design of early phase clinical trials that involve assessment of exposure-response relationships. We collaborate with investigators who access resources offered through UM Institute for Clinical and Health Research
