Molecular Screening Shared Resource
Delivering High Throughput Screening to the UCLA research community
The MSSR is a core facility open to all research labs on campus.
The services provided include the use of high throughput screening (HTS) technology, a total of roughly 200,000 compounds in various libraries, siRNA sets of the druggable genome for mouse and human and a database of results from screens. Please use the links above to find out more about the MSSR.
The MSSR is currently funded by the JCCC, the Department of Molecular and Medical Pharmacology, the Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Molecular Genetics, and the Dean’s office, David Geffen School of Medicine and the California NanoSystems Institute.
