Ø  Photo gallery of the 3rd Working Group meeting of our COST Action, in Krakow (2-3 March, 2017)

Ø  Second collection of compounds for screening.   

Following the success of the first compounds collection and thanks to the established screening activities within WGs, we are now launching a second collection of compounds for screening.

·         Members of WG1 as well as people having in their hands some molecules are invited to include them in the growing CM1407 Action Library. Molecules will be then prepared by the library Chair, Dr. Mark Brönstrup, in a suitable format for screening and sent out to WG2, WG3 and WG4 members for biological assays.

·      Members of WG2, WG3 and WG4 having in their hands suitable screening assays are invited to make available this technology to screen the CM1407 Action Library.

This activity is free of charge for CM1407 members, and your intellectual property (whether you provide or screen molecules) will be guaranteed by the Material Transfer Agreement mutually signed by you, the Action Chair and the library Chair. Of course, two different MTAs are established for providers and screeners.

The deadline for compounds collection or screening availability is 30 May 2017.

More information on quantity, quality and shipping address are available in the attached CM1407LIB_ProviderMTA.pdf file. Compounds providers are kindly requested to fill in also the accompanying CompoundsCollectionForm.xls Excel file.

Proposals for novel screening tools should be provided within the CM1407BIO_FinalUserMTA.pdf file.
