Bill Scott (IUPUI)

Bill Scott is a research professor in the chemistry and chemical biology department at Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). He has extensive experience in both pharmaceutical and academic environments. The focus of his research is the development of simple and inexpensive equipment and combinatorial synthetic methodologies to quickly make large numbers of “drug-like” molecules that facilitate training projects for students. Bill is dedicated to teaching students the skills required to discover drugs and drug leads, especially for neglected and infectious diseases. Global involvement of students in this discovery process is enabled by IUPUI's Distributed Drug Discovery (D3) program.
