NIH invites applications for assays for high throughput screening to support the Molecular Libraries Probe Production Centers Network (MLPCN).
This announcement is an NIH Roadmap Initiative. The NIH Roadmap is an innovative approach to accelerate fundamental discovery and translate that knowledge into effective prevention strategies and new treatments.
The purpose of this announcement is to promote and support discovery and development of new chemical probes as research tools for use by the research community to advance the understanding of biological functions and disease mechanisms. The MLPCN offers biomedical researchers access to large-scale automated screening centers, diverse compound libraries, medicinal chemistry resources, and information on biological activities of small molecules. The goal of the MLPCN is to implement a variety of innovative biochemical and cell-based assays for phenotypes or biological targets for which there are limited selective and potent small molecule modulators available to the public.
Potential applicants should contact Dr. Yong Yao, NIH Roadmap Molecular Libraries and Imaging, Division of Neuroscience and Basic Behavioral Science, NIMH; telephone: 301-443-6102; email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
