Our Mission

The Consortium for Natural Products Drug Discovery (CNPDD) supports a highly integrated group of investigators from five departments and three colleges on the campus of Oregon State University. The primary mission of CNPDD is to provide the physical, fiscal, and administrative infrastructure that frees investigators to address ambitious and challenging research questions in the area of natural product-based drug discovery. Collaborative interactions allow CNPDD investigators to expand the scope of research beyond what is achievable within individual labs and synergistically achieve major advances in our collective, scientific fields.
