About Our Lab
The High-Throughput Screening (HTS) / Drug Discovery Lab, one of many pediatric labs engaged in advanced pediatric cancer research at Nemours/ Nemours Children’s Hospital, Delaware, opened in May, 2011. As an integral part of the Nemours Center for Childhood Cancer Research (NCCCR), we use advanced robotic equipment that gives us the capability to screen thousands of potential drugs in a short time.
This key equipment, necessary for a fully functional HTS operation, was purchased with a generous donation from the B+ Foundation, and we have secured funding from the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, the I Care I Cure Foundation, and the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
We’re also working to identify more effective treatments for childhood leukemia.
