NCBiotech Jobs Board ● Connecting North Carolina's life science employers and workforce.

The SGC (Structural Genomics Consortium) is a not-for-profit, public-private partnership that performs basic science of relevance to drug discovery. Our research is conducted at several sites around the world to produce reagents, proteins, antibodies, assays, and data that support exploration of the human genome. All material and intellectual output of the SGC is placed in the public domain for use without restriction.

The first SGC laboratory to operate in the USA is located in the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy at UNC Chapel Hill (SGC-UNC). The SGC-UNC laboratories were opened in the Summer of 2015 by five scientists who were former employees of GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) in Research Triangle Park, NC. Generous support from the Eshelman Institute of Innovation and the University Cancer Research Fund were instrumental in the start-up of the SGC laboratory.

The scientific focus of the SGC-UNC is the chemical biology of protein kinases. Our scientists are working to create chemical inhibitors and screening assays to explore the biology of these proteins in human health and disease.
