New Findings from National Institutes of Health Describe Advances in Chemical Biology (Innovation in academic chemical screening: filling the gaps in chemical biology)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Investigators publish new report on Life Science Research. According to news reporting originating in Rockville, Maryland, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Academic screening centers across the world have endeavored to discover small molecules that can modulate biological systems. To increase the reach of functional-genomic and chemical screening programs, universities, research institutes, and governments have followed their industrial counterparts in adopting high-throughput paradigms."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from the National Institutes of Health, "As academic screening efforts have steadily grown in scope and complexity, so have the ideas of what is possible with the union of technology and biology. This review addresses the recent conceptual and technological innovation that has been propelling academic screening into its own unique niche. In particular, high-content and whole-organism screening are changing how academics search for novel bioactive compounds."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Importantly, we recognize examples of successful chemical probe development that have punctuated the changing technology landscape."
