Scientific Expert Review Panel (SERP)

Our Scientific Expert Review Panel (SERP) consists of a diverse group of scientific thought leaders from the areas of chemical biology, medicinal chemistry, pharmacology and related disciplines. SERP members provide expert knowledge, evaluation and guidance on chemical probes. They generously provide their expertise and time to inform on the best probes available for a particular experiment, or cellular or in vivo experiments and recommend best practices for using them.
