Conference/Symposium on

Location: Leipzig University

Four of the biggest European networks on GPCR research (COST Actions Adher’n Rise and ERNEST plus DFG-funded SFB1423 “Structural Dynamics of GPCR Activation and Signaling” and RU2372 “G protein signalling cascades”) have joined forces to organize the international meeting 4GPCRnet, which will take place from 26th-29th September 2022 in the beautiful city of Leipzig in Germany.

Four of the biggest European networks on GPCR research (COST Actions Adher’n Rise and ERNEST plus DFG-funded SFB1423 “Structural Dynamics of GPCR Activation and Signaling” and RU2372 “G protein signalling cascades”) have joined forces to organize the international meeting 4GPCRnet, which will take place from 26th-29th September 2022 in the beautiful city of Leipzig in Germany.

4GPCRnet will be a key event for the GPCR community in 2022 where the latest findings and approaches to GPCR signal transduction research – a core focus of medicinal drug development – will be presented. By joining forces, we aim to bring the global GPCR community back together after the significant disruptions caused by the pandemic. To this end, the symposium will create the necessary synergies for new ideas and collaborations, thus promoting international and interdisciplinary cooperation. The 4GPCRnet program comprises scientific sessions on the key topics in the field, as well as poster and networking sessions, industrial exhibitions, and cultural events.

detailed information on program and registration

 

The investigation of GPCR receptor families with their endogenous ligands as well as other clinically relevant compounds is a focus of the Collaborative Research Center 1423 "Structural Dynamics of GPCR Activation and Signal Transduction" coordinated at the Leipzig University. The SFB 1423 is a four-year research network funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), comprises a total of 19 subprojects in which four institutions are involved: Leipzig University, Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin and the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine. Researchers from biochemical, biomedical and computational contexts are collaborating across the boundaries of their respective institutions and disciplines to gain a comprehensive understanding of the effects of structural dynamics on the function of G protein-coupled receptors.
