University of Dundee – The National Phenotypic Screening Centre

The National Phenotypic Screening Centre (NPSC) is a new drug discovery venture funded by the Scottish Universities Life Science Alliance (SULSA) based in Dundee and Oxford and working closely with Edinburgh University.  Its focus is applying advanced phenotypic approaches to drug discovery for complex human diseases in order to rebalance the current emphasis on target-based screening.
