The GPCR Colloquium will begin on Friday, April 3 at 2:00 pm and conclude on Saturday, April 4 at 12:30 pm.

It will include a keynote lecture by Nobel Prize winner, Brian Kobilka, three symposia, and poster presentations. More details on ASPET's Colloquium webpage.

A separate registration fee is required. To register, visit and add a GPCR Colloquium ticket to your EB registration. Space is limited. Be sure to register in advance. Sales end March 13.

Tremendous scientific advancements over the last decade indicate that GPCR physiology and pharmacology is much more complex than originally thought and that it may be possible to exploit this complexity to treat a wide variety of diseases. The objective of sponsored Colloquium is to expose scientists to recent discoveries and multidisciplinary approaches used to study GPCRs and provide opportunities for establishing collaborations that bridge complementary interests. This one day event will feature speakers that have made exciting discoveries in GPCR research that range from molecular to systems biology, basic research to translational studies, and pharmacology to physiology.
