About us

  • The Assay Development and Screening Platform (ADSP) has been established in 2010 as a Research Group within the Institute of Molecular Toxicology and Pharmacology.

    In collaboration with researchers of the Helmholtz Zentrum München as well as national and international cooperation partners, custom-designed assays are developed and/or optimized to screen for new bioactive molecules. Here, a major focus is devoted to the development of phenotypic assays for High-Content Screening (HCS) approaches in order to better reflect the biology of the underlying disease state. For this purpose, ADSP provides state-of-the-art equipment as well as screening techniques and maintains a chemical compound collection including a diversity set of compounds and the Prestwick FDA approved drugs. In order to evaluate and manage the screening data, ADSP uses IDBS ActivityBase together with PerkinElmer Columbus, Spotfire and High-Content Profiler.

    Research projects of ADSP deal with the identification of new targets and small molecule modulators of Ubiquitin singling processes implicated in immune response, cancer development and DNA repair.
