Hello Readers,

We have been very busy putting the Summit program together and have fantastic news to share with you:

  • Dr. GPCR Summit 2021:  The program is almost complete. We'll be bringing you to live talks, pre-recorded talks and you'll be able to come and ask Dr. Bob Lefkowitz & Dr. Randy Hall your questions about their book, science, and everything in between. Get your tickets today on Eventbrite. We've created multiple packages including an All Access package. The funds generated will be used to provide prizes for the 3 best trainee talks. Winners will also get an autographed copy of Dr. Lefkowitz's memoir.  Present a pre-recorded talk and get free access to the entire Summit! Also, if you're facing financial difficulties, would like to attend but can't submit a pre-recorded talk, reach out to us.  We want to thank our partner Domain Therapeutics for their support and for helping us bring you this fantastic summit. Domain Therapeutics is a biopharmaceutical company committed to discovering and developing innovative treatments for immuno-oncology tackling GPCR mediated immunosuppression. We are excited to announce that we are partnering with Twist Biopharma, a division of Twist Bioscience, for the 2nd edition of the Dr. GPCR Summit. Twist Biopharma provides end-to-end Solutions in Biologics Discovery & Early Development/ GPCR Therapeutics is also joining us as a partner of this year's Summit. GPCR Therapeutics's mission is to discover and develop innovative therapeutics targeting cancer based on the novel science of GPCR heteromers. Last but not least, we are happy to count Montana Molecular as our Summit partner for the second year in a row. Montana Molecular works with GPCR scientists to provide next-generation tools for analyzing GPCR signaling kinetics. Based in Bozeman Montana, the company develops genetically encoded, fluorescent biosensors that monitor signaling processes in living cells.
