Title of Collaborative Activity:

Assay Guidance Workshop For High Throughput Screening And Lead Discovery

Description of Collaborative Activity:

More than 40 participants attended the “Assay Guidance Workshop for High-Throughput Screening and Lead Discovery” on August 7, 2017, in Potomac, Maryland. Supported by National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS), the workshop was designed to provide participants with a broad and practical perspective on how to develop and implement robust assays for early-stage drug discovery projects. Participants included researchers from four National Institutes of Health (NIH) centers, Food and Drug Administration (FDA), industry, and academia. Workshop leaders with more than 20 years of drug discovery experience covered a broad range of critical concepts underlying robust assay development and screening strategies. There were also open discussions for participants to share experiences and seek practical advice about individual research interests.
