New Vistas in GPCR Research: the Dawn of an Exciting Drug Discovery Era?
The Medicinal Chemistry Divisions of the two Belgian Chemical Societies, Société Royale de Chimie (SRC) and the Koninklijke Vlaamse Chemische Vereniging (KVCV), are organising every year an international one day symposium in Belgium, with the aim to update participants on selected areas of pharmaceutical research by specialists in their respective field.
The purpose of this one day symposium is to delve into some of the latest developments in GPCR drug discovery. Following the elucidation of a growing number of GPCR’s structures over the past few years, and the increased understanding of the complexity of the receptor-ligand interactions, the way GPCR ligands are discovered and designed has entered a new era. A sightseeing tour covering GPCR structural biology advances, state-of-the-art experimental and computational technologies for hit discovery and medicinal chemistry case studies for ‘classical’ and allosteric GPCR programs will be presented.
