Center/Program Highlights: The Molecular Screening Shared Resource (MSSR) offers a comprehensive range of high throughput screening (HTS) services including chemical genomics, functional genomics and drug discovery. The MSSR is an open environment and welcomes academic investigators from UCLA as well as from all over the globe. Industrial clients are equally welcome as the MSSR is set up as a fee for service entity and does not retain intellectual property. Over 200k drug like compounds are accessible for screening. Also, siRNA, arrayed and pooled lentiviral shRNA and cDNA overexpression screening is available. Readouts range from conventional plate reader based to cutting-edge high content screening modalities using laser scanning cytometry or automated bright field microscopy.
