My primary research interests focused on molecular probe/drug lead
discovery via the high-throughput screening and assay development,
based on my earlier fluorescent and chemo- and bio-sensor expertise,
i.e. fluorescent chemical sensors/nanosensors or label-free high
throughput screening Epic platform. Furthermore, we have reputable
expertise supporting assay design and development (see PubChem).
Through innovative assay development and collaboration with medicinal
chemists, my lab aims to discover novel potent and specific molecular
probes, as well as therapeutic leads for their associated diseases.
The University of Iowa High Throughput Screening Facility (UIHTS) is
a high throughput platform that integrates robotics, detection systems
and chemical /biologics libraries. UIHTS enables scalable screening
approaches, not only to foster hit and lead generation for drug
discovery and development through screening of large chemical/biologics
libraries; but also to facilitate molecular probe discovery for
mechanism of action (MOA) studies of chemical biology through screening
of focused intellectually-designed compound collections. As a
university core facility, UIHTS provides highly flexible screening
services, project management, and assay/technology development for
investigators across campus as well as off-campus. For more information
