Chemistry technology experts at NCATS engage in a variety of innovative translational research activities, including:
- Design of bioactive small molecules.
- Development of small molecule libraries.
- Design and implementation of novel phenotypic screening platforms, which seek to identify substances that can alter the observable characteristics of a target of interest.
The aim of the Chemistry Technology program is to provide cutting-edge resources for drug development that benefit all NCATS scientists and their many research partners. The program is highly collaborative and supports projects and platforms that are currently underdeveloped or brand new. Learn more about these projects.
The program’s ultimate goal is to advance technology development to enable the broader biomedical research community to pursue basic and translational studies in a faster and more in-depth manner.
