Event Details

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.

Along with the Assay Guidance Manual(link is external), this workshop will be a valuable resource for academic, industrial and government laboratory scientists who are developing test methods for low- or high-throughput screening that are amenable to automation using appropriate statistical and operational concepts. It will also be beneficial to early career researchers and experienced investigators who wish to learn about the latest assay concepts for high-throughput screening and lead optimization.

Registration is free and available on a first come, first served basis. Be sure to register no later than March 19, 2018.




March 26 - William F. Bolger Center 9600 Newbridge Drive Potomac, Maryland 20854, March 27 - NCATS 9800 Medical Center Drive Building B, 3rd Floor Boardroom Rockville, Maryland 20850
