How to design assays for drug screening (8 h)

This short course is targeted at students who wish to learn the basics and challenges of drug screening on information rich cell based models. Aspects of assay design ranging from cell type choice, readout selection, standardization, miniaturization, data analysis, will be covered. Moreover, advantages of targeted versus phenotypic assays in drug screening will be discussed. At the end, participants will be challenged in a competition to propose a cell based-assay that could be potentially relevant for their own research projects/interests.
