6:30 Dinner Workshop: Emerging Methods for Measuring Target Engagement*

The increase in usage of small molecule probes for the validation of novel therapeutic targets requires effective means of assaying target engagement in living systems. Importantly, measuring the extent to which a target is engaged (or not) provides critical information regarding probe selectivity and attributed efficacy modulating a biological process, while informing of any off-target interactions and potential toxicity. The workshop is designed to discuss emerging techniques and technologies for measuring target engagement.
