14th Annual G Protein-Coupled Receptor (GPCR) Retreat

14th Annual G Protein-Coupled Receptor (GPCR) Retreat

Conference - Cleveland, United States

The GPCR Retreat focuses on advances in our understanding of how cells communicate with each other and the environment via G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), the largest class of membrane proteins and one of the largest classes of current drugs on the market. The GPCR Retreat is an annual joint meeting that rotates around locations in the United States and Canada surrounding the Great Lakes region (Ontario, Quebec, Michigan, New York, and Ohio). The first Great Lakes GPCR Retreat was conceived, organized and held in London, Ontario, Canada in October 1999. The following year, the Great Lakes GPCR Retreat partnered with the annual symposium of the Club des Récepteurs à Sept Domains Transmembranaires du Québec. The meeting tours through many of the major universities in the great lakes region in both Canada and the United States and this is the first time that it will be held in the Cleveland area. The past few GPCR retreats have been held in London, Ontario (2012), Chateau Montebello, Quebec (2011), Kingsbridge Centre, Ontario (2010), Rochester, New York (2009), Bromont, Québec (2008), London, Ontario (2007) and Detroit Michigan (2006). The region of the Great Lakes harbors an exceptionally high concentration of scientists working on virtually all aspects of GPCR research. This meeting has now become internationally recognized as a landmark meeting for the dissemination of results, exchange of ideas and the development of collaborations in the field of molecular pharmacology.

Organization: Case Western Reserve University
