Following the Keck School of Medicine’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the three core facilities in the Eli and Edythe Broad CIRM Center (Choi Therapeutic Screening, Optical Imaging and FACS) will shut down at noon on Friday, March 20, 2020. As soon as we are able to reactivate core facility operations, we will inform all users.
The Choi Family Therapeutic Screening Facility enables investigators from USC and beyond to improve their understanding of diseases and accelerate the discovery of potential therapeutic drugs.
Part of the Eli and Edythe Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at USC, the facility comprises extensive chemical libraries, state-of-the-art screening equipment and trained technicians. Researchers can perform image-based small molecule screening, and our technicians will help develop computer software to perform automated image analysis and data collection. Researchers can also use these automated microscopes for other imaging needs.
