The thematic focus of the Center for Molecular Medicine, an NIGMS funded Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE), is on understanding the molecular basis of human disease. The Center through an NIH/NIGMS P30 grant supports pilot projects and four cores: the Administrative, Protein, Genetic Technologies, and Organic Synthesis cores.  The Protein, Genetic Technologies, and Organic Synthesis cores are run as recharges centers with costs supplementated by the P30 COBRE grant. The long-term goals of the Center include (i) enhancing multidisciplinary research on the study of human disease, (ii) enhancing research competitiveness of junior faculty and (iii) building, strengthening, and creating new core facilities to enhance the research capabilities of researchers throughout the University of Kentucky and elsewhere.
