In the 6-08-04 issue of Inside Bioassays, the article “MIT’s Anne Carpenter Discusses HT Microscopy, Cellular Arrays” (see InsideBioassays, 6/8/2004) contained an error in the headline and the story. Carpenter is a postdoctoral researcher at the Whitehead Institute, not at MIT as the story stated. While David Sabatini, the professor in whose laboratory she works, is a professor both at Whitehead and MIT, Carpenter is employed through the Whitehead.

In the 6-08-04 issue of Inside Bioassays, the article, “Now on Its Own, Pharmacopeia Drug Discovery to “Ramp up” Internal Efforts” (see InsideBioassays, 6/8/2004) contains a factual error. The article, based on incomplete facts provided, stated that the company has a cash burn of $46 million. In fact, PDD has $46 million in cash and its expected burn is less than $5 million, according to the company.
