High-throughput screening platform for small-molecules with anti-inflammatory potential 2020-2022
Budget: 600.000 RON
Project director: Marioara Chiritoiu-Butnaru
This project aims to develop a sensitive high-throughput screening platform by generating an endogenously tagged interleukin-1β reporter cell line by CRISPR-Cas9 technology, able to monitor stimulated IL-1β secretion with the purpose to identify new chemical compounds with anti-inflammatory activity that will be validated in primary macrophages and a mouse model for sepsis.
