SBU Researchers Discover Possible New Approach for Developing Antifungal Drugs
The last drug designed to more effectively treat dangerous systemic fungal infections, most often affecting immunocompromised patients, was developed more than 20 years ago. Now an interdisciplinary team of investigators from Stony Brook University believe they have identified what may be a new approach toward developing another class of better antifungal agents.

Message from the Director
Dr. Iwao Ojima, Distinguished Professor and Director, ICB&DD
Welcome to the Institute of Chemical Biology & Drug Discovery
The primary objective of ICB&DD is to establish a world-class “ Center of Excellence” in chemical biology and drug discovery at Stony Brook. The rapid and impressive advancement of chemical biology in the last decades clearly demonstrated that solutions for vast majority of medical problems rely on the understanding of the molecular basis of diseases, therapeutic targets, drug actions, and drug resistance. ICB&DD promotes highly productive interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research bridging the West, East and South campuses as well as Brookhaven National Laboratory to attack major and significant biomedical problems to find solutions including the discovery of novel therapeutic drugs. ICB&DD significantly contributes to the advancement of a truly comprehensive biomedical research enterprise from molecular science to clinic at Stony Brook.
