High Throughput Screens

About the High Throughput Screening facility

We are based in the Wolfson Wohl Cancer Research Centre building on the Garscube Estate. We offer assistance, on a collaborative basis, to Centre researchers in designing and undertaking high throughput screening projects.

So that we can understand the goals of your project, its current status and the background information available, please contact Dr Emma Shanks for assistance in designing your project.
