The Barcelona GPCR Spring Conference 2014 is organized by COST Action CM1207 GLISTEN (GPCR-Ligand Interactions, Structures, and Transmembrane Signalling – A European Research Network) and will take place on the 28-30th of April 2014 at the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park right in front of the Mediterranean Sea.
The registration period is now closed. We are looking forward to seeing you in Barcelona.
G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are the largest family of proteins involved in signal transduction across membranes and one of the most important pharmaceutical drug target classes. Recent advances in GPCR research are providing new insight into the regulation of these receptors and constitute exciting opportunities for the discovery of new treatments. The Barcelona GPCR Spring Conference 2014 will bring together international experimental and computational experts which will share their most recent research in the fields of:
GPCRs protein-protein and protein-lipid interactions
Discovery & Design of GPCR Ligands
Lectures on the above topics will be presented during the conference (see program) and special emphasis will be given to contributions of junior scientists in the form of short talks and posters (see abstract submission). Furthermore, this meeting will include several discussion sessions intended to maximize opportunities to build collaborations between GPCR experts from different fields.
