The goal of the research will be the conversion of targets into screens for potential small-molecule effectors of their function, or the determinationof their molecular structures as a prelude to drug discovery studies. It is anticipated that the NCI may assist in these steps, as well as facilitating access to compound and natural product extract libraries, and the preclinical development of any promising leads discovered through the process. The ultimate goals envisaged are the creation of an integrated, cohesive drug discovery program and early clinical trials system that is founded on mechanistic-based approaches, and to make emerging knowledge of cancer biology the basis for drug discovery, development and testing.

The rapid progress made in the elucidation of mechanisms underlying human diseases has resulted in a proliferation of molecular targets availablefor potential drug treatment. The adaptation of these targets to high throughput screening processes has greatly expanded the potential for drug discovery. 7). To be considered for access to the NPR, organizations are required to submit short proposals outlining the nature of their screening systems and demonstrating the capability to process active extracts and develop any isolated active agents towards clinical trials and commercial production.

On the recommendation of a board of external advisors, the NCI has approved promoting the discovery of novel molecular targets for cancer through provision of grant support. Investigatorswill be expected to identify novel molecular targets, to validate them as a basis for cancer drug discovery, and to develop assays for the targets. Approaches to achieving these goals will be left to the creativity of the investigators, but may include genetic, structural biological or molecular biology approaches, or the identification of the functions of novel cellular targets through exploring their binding patterns to natural products or other ligands.
