The Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening (SLAS) has published two timely special issues of its MEDLINE-indexed scientific journals.
The June 2014 issue (volume 19, issue 5) of the Journal of Biomolecular Screening is entitled Knowledge from Small-Molecule Screening and Profiling Data. Nineteen scientific manuscripts present a broad and diverse collection of research and perspectives on generating, mining, and interpreting data from high-throughput and high-content experiments directed at probe and drug discovery.
The June 2014 issue (volume 1 9, issue 3) of the Journal of Laboratory Automation explores New Developments in Global Health Technologies. The 11 scientific manuscripts in this issue represent leading research institutions, nonprofit organizations and biomedical companies that are focused on developing, validating and implementing innovative technologies for the diagnosis and treatment of high global burden diseases.
“These special issues of JALA and JBS are an excellent example of SLAS’s commitment to bringing leading innovations to the life sciences R&D community,” says SLAS President Daniel G. Sipes. “They also are an excellent example of the SLAS spirit of community – when you consider authors, editors and manuscript reviewers, these two special issues represent the efforts of about 350 volunteer experts from around the world. It’s this volunteer-driven dynamic that sets such a high bar for SLAS educational priorities.”
