Outline

Drug Discovery Seed Compounds Exploratory Unit
We aim to identify seed compounds for drug development, which are active on drug target molecules, through HTS of large compound libraries.

Subjects

  1. High throughput screening (HTS) using in vitro and cell-based assay systems
  2. High content screening based on cell imaging
  3. HTS for compounds that recover yeast phenotypes induced by expression of human genes
