Understanding drug sensitivity in ovarian cancer
"Communication from Compounds Australia was extremely efficient and unambiguous. Importantly, after the primary screen concluded and the end user was looking to validate the key targets, Compounds Australia went above and beyond to identify solutions to a major problem we faced in sourcing sufficient reagents. Without their diligence and commitment, this project would not have been completed as originally anticipated."
