Accelerate and Streamline your Drug Discovery Research

These are exciting times for the discovery of new therapeutic strategies for better treatment in the field of immune-oncology, neurological disorders, or infectious diseases, among others. Discovering and developing these innovative therapeutic solutions is an exciting process. Yet it requires also innovative solutions enabling researchers to quickly address challenging unforeseen investigations with flexibility, robustness, accuracy, and efficiency while mitigating the risk of failures and complying with regulations. 

In this series of webinars, you can browse through different therapeutics areas and have an overview of innovative approaches ranging from biochemical or cell-based assays in homogeneous format for HTS or lead optimization, to HCA based approaches for target investigation on 2D or 3D models,  in vivo imaging in relevant animal models.

Reserve your slot today to discover new approaches in your field of interest!
