The GLISTEN Budapest 2014 Conference is organized by COST Action CM1207 and hosted by RCNS-HAS on the 2-4th of October, 2014. It is funded by the European Science Foundation through COST.
Parallel with the conference on the 4th of October, the GLISTEN Budapest GPCRDB Satellite Meeting will be hosted. Details about the Meeting can be found on the Programme page.
The Book of Abstracts is now available!
Registration is closed as of July 10, 2014.
To register for the GLISTEN Budapest GPCRDB Satellite Meeting, please email David Gloriam. (In your email, please specify if you have interest in participating in a particular committee, or just have a general interest in software or data.)
G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are the largest family of proteins involved in signal transduction across cell membranes and consequently, the most prominent protein family targeted by current pharmaceuticals. GLISTEN (GPCR-Ligand Interactions, Structures, and Transmembrane Signalling: a European Research Network) is a research network for scientists studying various aspects of GPCR structure and function, with a wide range of theoretical and experimental methods. GLISTEN consists of four working groups, focusing on different aspects of GPCRs:
- Working Group 1: Receptor dynamics
- Working Group 2: Biased signalling
- Working Group 3: GPCR-protein and GPCR-lipid interactions
- Working Group 4: Discovery and design of GPCR ligands
The conference will provide a platform for communicating the most current scientific progress in the mentioned areas, as well as hosting trainings on diverse, but complementary methods in GPCR drug design, focusing on Fragment-based GPCR drug discovery. Contributions of junior scientists (in the form of posters) are also encouraged.
