Membrane bound G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) play an integral role in sensing the external environment of the cell. A broad range of external stimuli signal through GPCRs, including neurotransmitters, hormones, odor molecules, cations, and even photons. Their position at the apex of essential signal transduction pathways means that malfunctioning of these molecules frequently leads to disease, making them a perfect target for drug therapies. Further, naturally occurring and induced mutations in GPCRs can provide valuable information about these signaling pathways and their role in human pathologies.

You are invited to join our panel of thought leaders in a live video webinar discussion about these very important proteins. During the broadcast, you will:

*       gain insight into the broad range of GPCR proteins and their role in signaling and disease
*       learn about techniques and technologies available to study GPCRs
*       see data from recent GCPR studies, presented by top scientists in the field
*       have the opportunity to ask questions of the expert panel LIVE during the event
