High throughput screening represents an attractive route for the discovery of modulators of newly discovered targets in cancer and other diseases. An area of my research focus is the development of validated cell-based high throughput screening assays for the discovery of modulators of such targets. Emphasis is given to discovery of modulators from natural products (plants, marine- and micro-organisms) through the design of natural products compatible screening assays. The biological characterization of screen hits through the elucidation mechanisms and/or modes of action is another area of my research focus. My work encompasses the intersection of various disciplines including natural products chemistry, molecular and cellular biology,and high throughput automation.
