CalciScreen is a R&D and Services core facility dedicated to the identification of Ca2+ signaling modulators for therapeutic applications.


CalciScreen is the first core facility in Europe to offer services from in vitro to in vivo preclinical phases in the field of Ca2+related diseases.


CalciScreen brings together the means and expertise, at the interface between chemistry and biology, of 3 French laboratories located in Brest, Tours and Orléans.


> Skills

1.   Screening of Ca²+ flux modulators - Brest
2.    CA²+ sensitive channels activities - Tours
3.    Custom chemical synthesis services (Synthèses de références, optimisation de composés prometteurs, conception de sonde, criblage de chimiothèque, chimie analytique, modélisation moléculaire et criblage in silico) - Orléans

This technological platform allows a reasoned screening of synthetic or natural compounds that modulate calcium signaling.
