Event Type:  Workshop (This is an NIH Science event)
Title:  Assay Guidance Workshop for High-Throughput Screening and Lead Discovery
Description:  September 10
William F. Bolger Center
9600 Newbridge Drive
Potomac, Maryland 20854

September 11
National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS)
9800 Medical Center Drive
Building B, 3rd Floor Boardroom
Rockville, Maryland 20850

NCATS is supporting a two-day workshop on Sept. 10-11, 2018, 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 NCATS staff and scientists from several 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, 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 Sept. 4, 2018. Learn more and register at For more information, email Nathan P. Coussens, Ph.D. at
