Best Practices for Chemical Probes

The recent re-launch of the Chemical Probes Portal, a community-led resource for chemical probe information, is a convenient time for reviewing best practices. Chemical probes are small molecules developed to selectively inhibit protein…

Can Network Biology Fuel Innovation in Drug Discovery?

If phenotypic screening is driving innovation in drug discovery, network biology is the fuel. In phenotypic screening, compounds are tested for their functional effects on cellular responses in a target agnostic manner. For drug discovery…

Privileged Chemistry, Privileged Biology – Made for Each Other

The selection of chemical matter to be used for screening is a major discussion topic for phenotypic drug discovery (PDD) researchers. At the recent Keystone Symposium on PDD, several talks were presented on focused chemical libraries suitable…

PDD Keystone 2016 Driving Innovation in Drug Discovery

Phenotypic drug discovery (PDD) is driving innovation in drug discovery. This was the take home message from the recent Keystone Symposium on Modern Phenotypic Drug Discovery: Defining the Path Forward. Bernard Munos (FasterCures, Fortune)…

Keystone Symposium on Modern Phenotypic Drug Discovery

Looking forward to a great conference on phenotypic drug discovery (PDD) at the Keystone Conference next week in Big Sky, Montana (Modern Phenotypic Drug Discovery: Defining the Path Forward, April 2-7, 2016). We will cover success stories,…
