Southern Research Scientists to Present New Data at the American Association for Cancer Research 102nd Annual Meeting in Orlando

BIRMINGHAM., Ala., March 29, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Southern Research Institute, a not-for-profit organization that conducts basic and applied research in the areas of preclinical drug discovery and drug development today announced that its scientists will be delivering 13 poster presentations at the AACR 102nd Annual Meeting 2011, April 2-6, in Orlando, Fla. Southern Research will also be available to meet with scientists at Booth #543.

Southern Research has discovered more than 20 anti-cancer drugs which have been accepted into clinical trials. Of those, seven have received FDA approval, with six additional drugs currently in late stage preclinical and early clinical trials. Further, Southern Research has evaluated 50 percent of all other FDA-approved cancer drugs on the market. Contract research services include basic research and target identification, lead discovery and optimization, preclinical development and clinical trials support.

Southern Research scientists will present new preclinical data posters in the Exhibit Hall:
