Jordi Mestres member of the Scientific Advisory Board for the Chemical Probes portal

Recently, Dr. Jordi Mestres, coordinator of the Systems Pharmacology research group at the IMIM was elected to the Scientific Advisory Board of the Chemical Probes portal, a free internet-based tool that allows researchers to look for the most appropriate chemical probe for their project, before they start their research. Chemical probes are very small molecules that interact with multiple proteins and they have had a huge impact in biomedical research as, if they are low quality, they can generate erroneous results. Understanding the interactions of these small molecules is key in the development of safer, more efficient drugs.

This innovative portal recommends chemical probes to researchers based on the contributions of the Scientific Advisory Board, a group of experts in the field of chemical biology, chemical medicine, pharmacology, and related fields, who are qualified to determine the best chemical probes available and establish appropriate guidelines for their use.
