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

NCATS, in collaboration with other NIH Institutes and Centers and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), is leading the Tissue Chip for Drug Screening program to develop human tissue chips that accurately model the structure and function of human organs — such as the lungs, liver and heart — to help predict drug Safety in humans more rapidly and effectively
