NIH Publishes New Solicitation of Assays for MLSCN

NEW YORK, March 27 (GenomeWeb News) - The National Institutes of Health announced new deadlines for applications to participate in the Molecular Libraries and Screening Center Network, which intends to screen 100 to 200 HTS assays per year.

 

A full schedule of submission dates can be found here.

 

The new solicitation supercedes PAR-05-147. New applications require electronic submission through Grants.gov using SF424R&R forms instead of the SF424 forms that were previously used in PAR-05-147. Programmatic aspects of the original announcement remain the same.

 

While there are no funds attached to acceptance in the library, NIH will support the costs of assay automation, screening and optimization chemistry.

 

The MLSCN was launched in July 2005.
