Preclinical testing of venom-derived compounds – open call for services
In the framework of the EUVEN COST Action the unique phenotyping infrastructure Czech Centre for Phenogenomics (CCP) will support researchers in searching for the novel utilization of venom-derived compounds and identifying their translational potential and identifying physiological functions of toxin compounds.
CCP offers the following services free of charge within this open call:
- Acute toxicity tests (LD50 test) to determine the mean lethal dose of the test substance
- Primary preclinical testing of venom-derived compounds of interest
Proposals from eligible users for free of charge access will be subject to a review procedure. The evaluation will be done jointly by an external scientific committee (EUVEN experts) and by the CCP executive board. Selection will be done merely on quality, impact, and feasibility. A potential for translational application of substance’s function and its possible exploitation will be assessed.
DEADLINE: 15th June 2022
