Now Offering APC Waivers for Review Articles – Limited Time Only

The editors of SLAS Discovery and SLAS Technology are currently seeking review articles on a variety of novel and current drug discovery topics. Reviews are essential contributions to the SLAS research community, serving to educate, improving the accessibility of research and providing authors with an opportunity to authoritatively distill the latest research advances. Review authors benefit from higher citations and distribution, while readers benefit from a filtered and condensed survey of complex topics.

For a limited time, the publication fee will be waived upon acceptance for all reviews submitted by August 31. For a full rundown on acceptable review manuscripts and submission criteria, visit our SLAS Journals Manuscript Category Descriptions and Examples. Review articles are a cumulative overview of the results from a collection of journal references about a particular topic. Existing materials, such as the introductory section of a thesis, can often be built into successful review articles by graduate students and postdoctoral researchers.

Reviews must be completed and submitted by August 31 to receive publication fee waivers. All submitted papers will be subject to peer-review to ensure scientific rigor, clarity of expression and integration with other contributions in the SLAS Discovery and SLAS Technology journals.

SLAS Technology Authors Talk Tech


Author Interview: Utilizing 3D Technologies to Study Tumor Cell Dissemination


In this episode, podcast host David Pechter invites SLAS Technology featured author Dr. Hossam Ibrahim (University College Dublin) to discuss his research on the dissemination of tumor cells to understand the mechanisms behind cancer metastasis. Tune in to hear how the research team developed a migration assay combining 3D models and a physiologically relevant extracellular matrix. Hear about the unique challenges faced by researchers while orchestrating the application of 3D technologies with high throughput screening methods.

For more, read Dr. Ibrahim's paper "A Biomimetic High Throughput Model of Cancer Cell Spheroid Dissemination onto Aligned Fibrillar Collagen". Dr. Ibrahim is a researcher at University College Dublin (UCD) in the School of Physics and also at the Nanoscale Function Group located in the Conway Institute of Biomolecular and Biomedical Research.

Behind the Special Issue: Single Cell Analysis Technologies


Behind the Special Issue: Join podcast host David Pechter as he invites Joseph de Rutte (Partillion Bioscience) to discuss the paper: “Sorting single-cell microcarriers using commercial flow cytometers”. This research was featured in the recent SLAS Technology special issue, Single Cell Analysis Technologies. Listen in as they discuss the unique formation of microscopic, bowl-shaped containers they call nanovials, and the applications of these cell carriers in flow cytometry for functional single-cell assays.

Dr. Joe de Rutte received his B.S. and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2014 and 2016 and received a Ph.D. in Bioengineering from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2020. He co-founded Partillion Bioscience in 2020 based on his Ph.D. research and currently leads the company as President. Dr. de Rutte was awarded the 2020 Society of Laboratory Automation and Screening Innovation Award in recognition of the impact of his “Lab on a Particle” work.
