Screening and High-Throughput Tools


This program supports the development and demonstration of broadly applicable screening and high-throughput tools to enable the translation of new paradigms of human health.


The emphasis is on the development of screening and high-throughput tools and associated computational models to enable biomedical interventions. 

Projects might focus on:

  • elucidating important engineering design rules or key foundational principles underlying future engineering, including the use of computational methods
  • prototyping or redesigning platform technologies and approaches
  • characterizing (in vitro, ex vivo, or in vivo) broadly applicable technologies, prototypes, and lead candidate products

NIBIB interests include but are not limited to: 

  • evolution methods for identifying therapeutic protein targets
  • organs-on-chips for drug screening
  • microfluidic systems for high-throughput screening of extracellular vesicles
