Press Release - Probe Miner published in Cell Chemical Biology, 2018
The publication of our article describing the Probe Miner website resource and entitled "Objective, Quantitative, Data-Driven Assessment of Chemical Probes" in Cell Chemical Biology prompted the publication of an ICR press release that received attention from several national and international media.
Professor Paul Workman published a nice post about our research in his blog 'The Drug Discoverer' arguing about the importance of selecting and using chemical probes appropriately and how the expert-curated online resource The Chemical Probes Portal and the data-driven and objective assessment resource Probe Miner can be used in conjunction to improve how scientists select and use chemical probes.
The Scientist also covered the publication of Probe Miner with a nice piece entitled "New Resource Ranks Chemical Probes for Human Proteins". Moreover, MedChemNet also contacted us to write an editorial for their spotlight on target validation focusing on chemical probes that we named "Selection of chemical probes for target validation" and Laboratory News will also feature an editorial written by us on its next number.
Interview - Wellcome's website, 'Develop your Research Career' section, 2018
I was interviewed for the new section in the Wellcome section 'Develop your research career' that features very useful advice and information about funding oportunities and also some researchers' stories. You will find my story in the postdoctoral section.
