Abstract submission deadline: November 14, 2019
Poster presenters for the colloquium will be selected from abstracts submitted by November 14 to EB 2020 specifically within
the GPCR Colloquium topic category (#3016-ASPET). Accepted posters will be presented at both the colloquium on Friday, April 3rd and scheduled to present during one the main EB poster sessions on Sunday-Tuesday.
This is a satellite meeting to EB 2020. The colloquium ticket fee will be in addition to your EB registration fees. To register, visit the Experimental Biology registration page and
add a GPCR Colloquium ticket to your EB registration. Space is limited. Be sure to register in advance.
