G Protein-Coupled Receptors: Molecular Mechanisms and Novel Functional Insights
Organizer(s): Arthur Christopoulos and Michel BouvierDate: February 17 - 22, 2012
Location: Fairmont Banff Springs, Banff, AB, Canada
The seven transmembrane-spanning G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are the largest superfamily of receptors in the human genome, are involved in virtually all physiological processes and represent the targets for at least 30% of all current medicines. Recent years have witnessed the coalescing of a number of important paradigms, including ligand-biased signaling, allosteric modulation and receptor dimerization, with substantial advances in structural determination, chemical biology and in vivo approaches to studying GPCR function. These developments will undoubtedly have a profound impact on future approaches to GPCR-based drug discovery. This meeting will focus on the interplay between these developments, and how they can be exploited to advance the translational application of cutting-edge GPCR-based research.
