G-protein-coupled-receptors: from structural insights to functional mechanisms

Monash University Prato Centre, Italy

A Biochemical Society Focused Meeting - co-organized by the Biochemical Society and Monash University.

Meeting background

A two-day meeting based at Prato in Italy, which will consider recent advances in G-protein coupled receptor structure and function, building on new concepts arising from biophysics, crystallography, pharmacology and cell biology.


  • Crystal structures of family A GPCRs
  • Ligand binding and activation of family A GPCRs
  • Ligand binding and activation of family B GPCRs
  • Novel ligands for GPCRs and drug design
  • RAMPs and other accessory proteins
  • GPCR oligomerisation
  • Trafficking of GPCRs
  • GPCR signalling to ion channels
  • Single molecule studies of GPCRs

Reviews by the speakers, based on their presentations at this major international meeting, will be published exclusively in Biochemical Society Transactions (Volume 41, part 1).

Abstract deadline: 11 July 2012.

Abstract submission for this meeting is now closed. If you would like to submit an abstract please contact the conference office.

Earlybird registration deadline: 13 August 2012.

'Eureka Moments: The protein that disappeared' As part of our centenary celebrations, a number of the Society’s Honorary Members have been asked to talk about the important moments in their careers and the future of the discipline.

The third to be released is that of Tim Hunt who spoke to Hugh Pelham about discovering the protein that disappeared. Watch the interview now!

Approved by the Society of Biology for the purpose of CPD, this event may be counted as 54 CPD credits.
