Drug discovery for infectious diseases relies heavily on the ability to rapidly and efficiently identify drug candidates. High-throughput and high-content screening approaches allow scientists to rapidly screen hundreds of leading candidate molecules and assess their mechanistic and phenotypic effects on living cells in real time. In this webinar, experts will discuss recent advances in high-throughput and high-content screening to efficiently identify therapeutic candidates for infectious diseases, such as schistosomiasis and COVID-19.

Topics to be covered

  • Adapting high-content screening methods to living organisms
  • Leveraging DNA-encoded libraries for high-throughput drug discovery
