High Throughput Screening (HTS)

Enabling researchers to conduct carefully planned drug discovery research that would otherwise be prohibitively expensive for single laboratories.

The Cancer Center HTS Laboratory allows members of the Cancer Center to use the techniques of high-throughput screening (HTS) of compounds or genomic siRNA libraries. The compounds identified in such experiments can be used as research tools to understand the complex molecular relationships that cause or prevent cancer as well as possible candidates for eventual drug development. The genes identified in HTS experiments may become eventual targets for compound screens leading to novel therapeutics.
