National Infrastructure for Chemical Biology (CZ-OPENSCREEN)
a part of EU-OPENSCREEN ERIC
The main aim of CZ-OPENSCREEN is to operate state-of-the art research infrastructure in the fields of chemical biology and genetics and to support a new interdisciplinary research approach by bridging traditional natural sciences such as cell biology, molecular and structural biology, biochemistry, organic chemistry and chem/bioinformatics. The CZ-OPENSREEN mission is to identify new molecular probes/tools for research and proof-of-concept compounds for the development of new potential
therapeutics. Unlike commercial platforms, CZOPENSCREEN also focuses on non-validated molecular targets, signaling pathways and neglected diseases. As a part of portfolio of offered services CZOPENSCREEN builds a compound library consisting of diverse, commercially available compounds as well as chemical compounds synthesized originally in the Czech Republic. CZOPENSCREEN represents a Czech national node of the pan-European research infrastructure EU-OPENSCREEN (European Infrastructure for Chemical Biology) and closely cooperates with other Czech research infrastructures such as CCP, CIISB, Czech-BioImaging, EATRIS-CZ and ELIXIR CZ.
