Description

17th International Symposium on Regulatory Peptides


The symposium will be divided into 9 thematic sessions, placing emphasis in GPCR conformation, trafficking, signal transduction, physiology, neuroscience and cell signaling of specific peptides. Initiating each session, an invited speaker will present a lecture (30 min lecture and 10 min discussion) emphasizing the state of the field and their current contributions. The lecture will be followed by 3 oral presentations (15-min) pre-selected from submitted abstracts by the program committee. The presentations will be chosen based on scientific novelty and merits with preference to young new investigators; the remaining abstracts will be presented in evening poster sessions. The transfer of research findings to therapeutics is critical and one session will be devoted to clinical applications. Each session will end with a general discussion in which speakers and Chairs are available to the audience for questions pertinent to the session.
To allow students and young investigators to meet distinguished researchers, prominent investigators are invited to deliver the Viktor Mutt and Werner Creutzfeldt Lectures. As interactions and exchange of ideas are critical to the meeting, the conference participants will stay at the same site, share all meals together and have unscheduled time in the late afternoons. The planned main program with confirmed invited speakers is as follows:
