Cancer Research UK – Beatson Institute, RNAi Screening Facility

The RSF couples High Throughput RNA interference (RNAi) screening and drug repurposing approaches with High Content Imaging (HCI) to translate fundamental cancer research towards new therapies. Collectively, these approaches provide a powerful tool for identifying novel/key players in a system of interest and elucidating novel drug targets and/or drug partners to improve existing cancer therapeutic approaches.
