FDA Issues Emergency Approval for Coronavirus Diagnostic Test
The U.S Food and Drug Administration issued an emergency use authorization to enable emergency use of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s 2019-nCoV Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel. To date, this test has been limited to use at CDC laboratories; the authorization allows the use of the test at any CDC-qualified lab across the country.
Uncovering the Genetic "Fingerprints" Driving Cancer
Almost two thousand seven hundred whole-genomes of cancer have now been sequenced and analyzed as part of the Pan-Cancer Analysis of Whole Genomes (PCAWG) Consortium. Newly discovered genetic “fingerprints” will help researchers identify previously unknown causes of cancer and will help guide future strategies to diagnose and treat this extremely complex disease.

More than 95% of the clinical biochemistry laboratory workload is based on small molecule identification, which can be analyzed through metabolomics-based techniques. In this infographic, we explore how metabolomics has reshaped the clinical diagnostics landscape.
Here we take an in-depth look at how AI is changing the landscape of drug discovery. The article includes key insights shared by keynote speaker Jackie Hunter PhD DSc CBE FBPharmacolS FMedSci during the SLAS2020 opening session. “The pharmaceutical industry, as it is currently configured just isn’t sustainable.” – Jackie Hunter, BenevolentAI.
In this image of the face of a Xenopus laevis (frog) embryo, the central nervous system is normally developed. Parts of the central nervous system, including the brain and near the retina of the left eye, can be seen in green. Cranial nerves, which are considered part of the peripheral nervous system, are seen in red.
