Every year there are important new medical discoveries that help people live longer and more productive lives. One of the big reasons is the constant development of new drugs to treat or help prevent diseases.

On this edition of UWM Today, meet two scientists who are deeply involved in the discovery of new pharmaceuticals. Jim Cook is one of UWM’s Distinguished Professors in Chemistry and Biochemistry. Doug Stafford is the director of the Milwaukee Institute for Drug Discovery.

Both have spent their careers searching for new ways of using chemistry to make life better.

Tom Luljak hosted UWM Today on WUWM for more than two decades and is the inaugural host of Curious Campus.
