Over two days the comprehensive scientific conference programme will feature keynote addresses, case study presentations, panel and roundtable discussions from over 35 speakers giving insight on into GPCR Discovery techniques. Topics being covered at the Congress include:-

Focus upon the optimization of all areas of GPCR drug design including structure, mechanism, SAR, protein and ligand structure based drug design and molecular and in silico modelling

Closer studies into various aspects of GPCR’s including allosteric modulations from both a chemistry and biology aspect, dimerisation and oligomerisation

Examining the implementation of GPCR screening methods, HTS, HCS as well as exploring the roles of cell and label free screening, assay technology as well as determining cost effective assay formats.

Latest approaches to other important aspects of GPCR’s - including the role of signaling and trafficking, functional selectivity, polypharmacology and Drug Discovery Programmes
