About This Conference:

The renewed excitement in the field of GPCR drug discovery is due to technological progress which has enabled the collection of more structural data on GPCRs and is allowing study of receptors in different conformational states. This meeting will focus on structural aspects of GPCRs and new assays and technologies whose applications may enable the discovery of more selective and therefore therapeutically attractive modulators of GPCR signaling.
