Description

June 8, 2010 |  9:00am-2:00pm

The Institute for Genomics & Systems Biology (IGBS) at the University of Chicago invites faculty, staff and students to participate in an introductory workshop in high-throughput cellular screening, which will be held on Tuesday, June 8, 2010 at the University of Chicago.

Presentations will include an overview of the mission of the IGSB’s Cellular Screening Center (CSC), a description of CSC resources and technologies, and seminars by CSC users. The presentations will be followed by a guided tour of the CSC through which participants will gain familiarity with the major equipment in the facility and its capabilities.  The CSC facilitates drug discovery and development by defining the complex genetics underlying disease, isolating chemical compounds that affect specific cellular activities, and developing potential therapeutics to target disease pathways (for more information please visit http://www.igsb.org/services/csc/).

The application deadline for the workshop is June 1, 2010.  If you wish to participate, please send your request to Aharon Solomon, IGSB Research Director at asolomon@uchicago.edu
