Chemical Probes as Essential Tools for Biological Discovery
Originally Aired April 16, 2020
Chemical probes are powerful tools to interrogate complex biological systems and have facilitated key discoveries that range from understanding how translation and basic cellular signaling processes work to developing targeted therapies. High-quality small molecule probes are complementary to commonly used genetic strategies and are central to basic and translational research. This webinar aims to provide researchers involved in developing and using chemical probes with practical suggestions to help select the most appropriate research tools along the path to amazing discoveries!
Our experts will also share how innovations using chemical probes are helping to enhance our understanding of complex disease pathways and mechanisms and accelerate translational efforts.
Please join us for this webinar with Daniel Nomura (University of California, Berkeley), Anna Greka (Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School), and Paul Workman (The Institute of Cancer Research, London) to learn more.
