HTS Awards

High Throughput Screening (HTS) Supplemental Grant Program ran from 2013 until November 2016. The Program aimed to help fund discovery of innovative small-molecule probes and “hits”. The intent of this program was to support pilot projects, which are focused on biomedically-relevant targets and which would be conducted at a HTS core facility located at one of the CBC universities. The CBC HTS Award would match half of the justified expenses (up to $20,000) of a small molecule screening project, via payment to the specified HTS facility.
