Natural Products Resource Could Help Researchers Find New Treatments

Canvass, a screening library for natural products, was created by NCATS to uncover the potential medical use of these compounds and enable the creation of new treatments for diseases.

A family of proteins, including the cancer target protein NSD2, surround a cell’s nucleosome.
New Approach to Identify Potential Cancer Drugs

NCATS researchers develop a series of assays (tests) to identify compounds that disrupt a driver of several cancers.
