Practical Training: Robot-based High-Throughput Screening
Full course description
Practical along with Core Course ‘Drug Discovery’. A visit will be made at the medium throughput screening at the department of Pharmacology and Personalised Medicine, and a site visit to a high-throughput laboratory at Grünenthal (Aachen) or J&J (Beerse). During these visits the students will also be given more background information on the automated systems.
The students will be visiting a high-throughput facility in a drug development company. They will learn how high-throughput screening can be achieved based on different technologies: in vitro tests/models and big data analysis.
