Translational Research: Assay Development
The identification and testing of agents acting through a particular target that may modify a disease’s course typical require a set of reliable and reproducible assays to demonstrate the efficacy, selectivity, and potency of the potential therapeutic candidate. Such assays may be used to identify hits from high throughput screening campaigns, refine peptides by molecular panning, or assess in vivo properties of agents.
