Using NIH Roadmap as Guide, NIGMS Hopes Imaging Probe Proposal Will Improve HT Cell-Based Assays | GenomeWeb

The National Institutes of Health is soliciting proposals for new molecular imaging probes to facilitate cellular microscopy, according to a program announcement released at the beginning of this month.

Although the program announcement is intended to foster the development of probes that will increase the efficiency of basic research microscopy, the NIH expects that many of the resulting technologies will be parlayed into improved methods for high-throughput and high-content drug screening, an NIH official told CBA News this week.
