Nature Methods selects Jana Selent as the featured author of the month for August

Dra. Jana Selent, coordinator of the GPCR drug discovery group, has been selected as the featured author of the month for the August edition in the journal Nature Methods.

Recently, the Group of Dra. Selent published his latest article GPCRmd uncovers the dynamics of the 3D-GPCRome in this journal, where she presents a new tool to study one of the key elements in cell signaling, G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) which are the target of almost 40% of current drugs.

This tool, the GPCRmd platform, will help improve our understanding of the function of these receptors, which are critical for transmitting signals to the interior of cells. The design of this tool has been made possible thanks to a consortium of researchers from 23 different institutions of 10 different European countries and the United States, led by the group of Dr. Jana Selent and with important contributions from researchers of the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) in Switzerland and the Autonomous University of Barcelona.
