What You Will Learn

  • Choice of screening strategy depends on the available knowledge and tools
  • Approaches will change for first-in-class versus advances-in-class
  • Screening strategy success is enhanced by the availability of clinically relevant biomarkers and assays that relate to biomarkers. 
  • Chemists should take more responsibility for understanding strategies, assay results and interpretation of results.
