Young Scientist Research Series – Part 1:
Molecular Pharmacology Postdoctoral Award Competition
Tuesday, August 11, 2020, 2:00 pm – 3:15 pm ET
Hear cutting-edge presentations that report new insights into the regulation of 7-transmembrane receptor cellular signaling that regulate novel pathways in health and disease. Pharmacologists interested in neuropharmacology, cancer pharmacotherapeutics,
and drug design and development will have the opportunity to learn about new strategies and opportunities in translational pharmacology, precision medicine, and systems physiology and pharmacology.
This blue ribbon award-winning research is from several post-doctoral fellows from the
ASPET Division for Molecular Pharmacology who will compete for a spot on the division’s executive committee.
Audience participation is encouraged via questions submitted to the Q&A before and during the talk, as well as continued general or individual discussion via ASPETConnect. The Postdoctoral Award Competition will be judged by Molecular Pharmacology
Executive Committee members and serves as a venue to introduce promising young scientists to the greater ASPET community.
