Please join us in congratulating Dylan EigerVaithish VelazhahanMiriam ScarpaJiafei MaoNiamh SayersTanishka Saraf & András Tóth. We'd also like to express our gratitude to our partners for their support: Domain Therapeutics, a biopharmaceutical company committed to discovering and developing innovative treatments for immuno-oncology tackling GPCR mediated immunosuppression. Please make sure you watch Dr. Meriem Semache's talkTwist Biopharma, a division of Twist Bioscience, provides end-to-end Solutions in Biologics Discovery & Early Development. Don't miss out on watching Dr. Aaron Sato's talk presented at the Summit. GPCR Therapeutics with the mission is to discover and develop innovative therapeutics targeting cancer based on the novel science of GPCR heteromers. Dr. Pina Cardarelli and Dr. Juan Jose Fung's talk is a must-watch. 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. SYnAbs's vision is to fill the gap in the marketplace for innovative monoclonal antibodies against poor immunogenic compounds and complex antigens including GPCRs. SynAbs offers a custom monoclonal antibody generation service as a one-stop solution, from antigen design to multi-gram manufacturing of the monoclonal of interest.
