Small MoleculeNCATSHigh Throughput Screening

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
