TIC Seminar - High Throughput Screening: Assay Design and Data Analysis

Dr Amee George, Manager, Target and Drug Discovery Platform, JCSMR

Dr George obtained her PhD in 2007 from the Department of Pathology at the University of Melbourne. With an interest in functional genomics, in 2008, she commenced her postdoctoral studies in a joint appointment with the University of Queensland and the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre (Victorian Centre for Functional Genomics) in Melbourne focusing on developing and undertaking high throughput functional and compound screens to identify the molecular basis underlying disease. In April 2015, she moved to the JCSMR at ANU in the ACRF Department of Cancer Biology and Therapeutics to continue her research, and played an instrumental role in setting up the new ACRF Target and Drug Discovery platform located at the JCSMR, of which she now manages.

Her seminar will discuss high throughput screening in the context of screening assay design/optimisation (including statistical considerations) and data analysis strategies.
