The symposium is free, but you must be a Dr. GPCR Ecosystem member, which is also free!

We have been setting aside 2 hours for networking and poster presentations on Kumospace. The posters don’t have to be fully formatted, just come with a few slides and have a chat with your community members about your favorite GPCR or other signaling protein. If you’d like to present your work during networking time on September 22nd, please fill out this form. Everyone is welcome!

As a premium Dr. GPCR Ecosystem member, you can always watch the video recordings of these episodes before they get released to the general public on podcasting platforms. You won’t have to wait weeks for the recordings to be available.
