The Virginia Tech Center for Drug Discovery Screening Laboratory (VTCDDSL) assists researchers to develop and carry out high-throughput assays.  The laboratory is BSL2 certified and can do both cell-based and enzyme-based screening assays.

We have available to researchers several broad-spectrum compound libraries including a new, unique, transition-metal complex library developed by VTCDD member Joe Merola.   We also have targeted libraries such as the kinase inhibitor library.

Purchase of the equipment for the VTDDSL was made possible by funds from the Colleges of Science and of Agriculture and Life Sciences
