Identifying new therapeutics for endometriosis using high throughput molecular and compound phenotypic screens

Project Details

An increasingly popular approach to in vitro drug discovery is high-throughput screening (HTS). In addition to the therapeutic applications of drug discovery, HTS screens can also expand our knowledge about the molecular characteristics of cell function.

We are using HTS technology to identify drugs that could be suitable to investigate for therapeutic use in endometriosis, and which further our knowledge and understanding of the cellular pathways involved in endometriosis.
