NCATS is supporting this two-day workshop that will cover a broad range of critical concepts underlying assay development for high-throughput screening and lead discovery projects, along with hands-on data analysis training. This workshop, which will feature presentations by several NCATS staff members and scientists from pharmaceutical companies, is designed to disseminate critical information about the implementation of robust assay methods and is particularly relevant for researchers developing bioassays for the discovery of drugs or chemical probes. Many of the workshop instructors have 20 to 30 years of experience in the field of drug discovery. Learn more >

Registration is free and available on a first come, first served basis. Be sure to register no later than March 19, 2018. Registration information is forthcoming and will be posted soon. Interested participants can contact Nathan Coussens.
