The co-chairs curated 150 GPCR-related abstracts for a special poster session on May 10-11 that includes pharmacology, physiology, and biochemistry. Virtual posters at the Colloquium will include a PDF poster with a 5-minute audio
narration by the author as well as a text-based Q&A discussion board. You can also reach out to authors privately through the written chat function or request a 1:1 video chat.
Poster finalists will be announced during the meeting and attendees will vote on the best poster with prizes awarded to the top 3 on May 11.
Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and support from ASPET, ASBMB, and APS, a ticket for the colloquium is being provided at no extra charge with your paid registration to Experimental Biology.
