ABSTRACT: Small molecule modulation of biological pathways is an important means of understanding and treating disease. In cancer, small molecules that target the apoptotic pathway have been shown to be effective anti-cancer compounds, whereas in diabetes, small molecules have been useful in directing the differentiation of embryonic stem cells towards cell populations that can be transplanted as a cell replacement therapy. Work on the development and preclinical evaluation of compounds identified in the Hergenrother and Melton laboratories targeting these diseases will be described.
