Assay Development and Screening Technology (ADST)

Published by NCATS

High Throughput ScreeningSmall MoleculeNCATS

One of the first steps in the drug development process is creating test systems — called assays — on which researchers assess the effects of chemical compounds on cellular, molecular or biochemical processes of interest. At NCATS, the experts in the Assay Development and Screening Technology (ADST) program work to optimize assays requested or submitted by the biomedical research community for high-throughput small-molecule screening

Drug discovery and development: Role of basic biological research

Published by Alzheimers Dement (N Y).

Drug DiscoveryTarget Validation

This article provides a brief overview of the processes of drug discovery and development. The aim is to help scientists whose research may be relevant to drug discovery and/or development to frame their research report in a way that appropriately places their findings within the drug discovery and development process and thereby support effective translation of preclinical research to humans.

Genetic-Driven Druggable Target Identification and Validation

Published by Trends Genet.

Target IdentificationGWAS AssociationGenetic ToolboxExpression Quantitative Trait Locus

This article reviews the opportunities and challenges, and infer criteria for the optimal use of genetic findings in the drug discovery pipeline. Choosing the right biological target is the critical primary decision for the development of new drugs. Systematic genetic association testing of both human diseases and quantitative traits, along with resultant findings of coincident associations between them, is becoming a powerful approach to infer drug targetable candidates and generate in vitro tests to identify compounds that can modulate them therapeutically

NCATSTarget IdentificationRNAi Screening

NCATS’ Functional Genomics Lab is designed to develop and improve RNAi Screening approaches to better understand gene function and identify treatment targets. Gene silencing through RNAi has emerged as a powerful tool for understanding gene function. Over the past several years, high-throughput RNAi screens have illuminated a wide variety of biological processes, ranging from genes that affect the activity of therapeutic agents to novel components of signaling pathways.
