Screening for Chemical Tools: Considerations on Compound Screening Collections, Assay Development and High-throughput Screening
Conference Recording Jan 08, 2013
About the Speaker
Dominique Audenaert obtained his Ph.D. in biomedical sciences in the Molecular Genetics department at the University of Antwerp, Belgium (2005) under the supervision of Christine Van Broeckhoven. His main research activities include assay development, high-throughput screening and the application of small molecules to study biological processes.
In marker-based assays, the expression level of a molecular marker reports a particular biological event. This approach allows to target biological pathways and perform compound screenings in model systems to identify compounds that interfere with specific developmental processes.
