Phenotypic screening – how to query biology in high content and high throughput analysis?

  High content analysis (HCA) allows for the systematic and automated assessment of biological events on the cellular and subcellular level. In combination with high throughput functional screening (HTS), HCA is a powerful tool for chemical biology, drug discovery and phenotypic drug profiling. However, analysis of large multiparametric data sets is challenging and remains a […]

Minisymposium: Covalent inhibitors in Drug Discovery

Some of the worlds most widely used drugs, e.g. acetylsalicylic acid, penicillins, omeprazole, clopidogrel, etc, are all based on covalent inhibition of the target enzyme. However, few drugs are designed to be covalent, and the pharmaceutical industry is still cautious for this mode-of-action due to an inherent risk of late stage idiosyncratic toxicology. In this […]
