GPCRs are still one of the most important drug targets although the marketing of GPCR drugs has been declining in the past. In recent years, the methodological progress made in various areas of life sciences has opened up a plethora of exciting avenues to modulate GPCR function. Many different disciplines, such as molecular and structural biology, biophysics, medicinal chemistry, computational biology and clinical sciences, all are involved in the ongoing endeavor to shed light on GPCR functionality and their biological consequences.
The major aim of the 1. Berlin Interdisciplinary Symposium for Young GPCR Researchers is to bring together young scientists from different fields of life sciences who focus on or work with GPCRs or GPCR signaling and thereby provide an interdisciplinary forum for new research ideas. Furthermore, the symposium aims to build a local scientific network in the Berlin area, allowing young scientists to benefit from research synergies and facilitate local collaboration possibilities.
Although the symposium primarily addresses young researchers in the field, we welcome scientists at any career stage and from other locations. Please note that the number of participants is restricted. Attendance is free of charge. For registration submit an abstract via email to Marcel Bermudez or Andreas Bock. The abstract deadline is March 11th 2018. Please use the abstract template provided in the download section.
