The first conference of the European Research Network on Signal Transduction (ERNEST, COST Action CA18133) will take place at the Queen’s University Belfast in Northern Ireland on October 28-30, 2019. More details and a registration form can be found here:

The conference will focus on recent advances in GPCRs pharmacology as well as systems biology strategies for advancing the main goal of ERNEST, namely development of a multidimensional holistic map of GPCR signal transduction. The program will cover GPCR macromolecular interactions in signalling pathways, biological roles of signal transduction and chemical modulators of GPCR signalling. In addition, the meeting will gather technical and conceptual developments in structural determination, functional analysis and computational modelling of GPCR macromolecular complexes. The goal of the meeting is to further our understanding of GPCR signal transduction at the molecular, cellular, and systems level, so as to facilitate the development of more effective GPCRs medicines.

COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is a funding agency for research and innovation networks. Our Actions help connect research initiatives across Europe and enable scientists to grow their ideas by sharing them with their peers. This boosts their research, career and innovation.

COST Action CA18133

All cells face the vital challenge of sensing their environments and responding in appropriate ways. How are different signalling pathways activated and modulated in precise and reproducible ways? Filling this gap in knowledge is absolutely necessary to advance the next generation of pharmaceutical drugs.
