Assay Guidance Workshop for High-Throughput Screening and Lead Discovery
Day 1: Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2022, 10:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. EDT
Day 2: Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2022, 8:50 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. EDT
The NCATS Assay Guidance Manual (AGM) program is hosting a two-day workshop that will cover a broad range of critical concepts underlying assay development and implementation for high-throughput screening and lead discovery projects. This workshop is designed to disseminate critical information about the implementation of robust assay methods and is particularly relevant for researchers developing molecular probes or clinical candidates. Many of the instructors have 20 to 30 years of experience in the field of drug discovery and will share information not readily found in a classroom or published material outside of the AGM. The workshop also will cover emerging technologies and modalities in drug discovery, including the use of DNA-encoded libraries and 3-D tissue models in drug discovery.
