Upcoming talk by Prof. Brian Kobilka M.D

G protein-coupled receptors

October 12 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

n this lecture, the Nobel prize winner Prof. Kobilka gives us an insight into the family of G -Protein-Coupled-Receptors (GPCR), the largest family of cell surface receptors. Given the role in regulation of all aspects of human physiology GPCR are the main target of today’s pharmaceuticals. He will discuss approaches to characterize the structure and mechanistic activation of GPCR at molecular level.

Postponed talk!

We are sorry to tell you but we have to postpone our talk with Prof. Dr. Dr. Haass to the winter semester due to the Corona-pandemic! As soon as we have a new date, we will announce it here and in the calender.

New talks!

We are excited to announce that there will be new lectures in the following summer semester 2020! We will keep you updated when, where and who will be presenting the lectures.

What are the “Poppelsdorfer Schlossgespräche”?

“Poppelsdorfer Schlossgespräche” is a biomedical lecture series with speakers working in the industry, economy and science, organized by students of Molecular Biomedicine of the University of Bonn. The talks address diverse, current scientific and medical issues. They take place at the Poppelsdorfer Schloss or at the LIMES Institute in a casual atmosphere. After the lecture there is always time for a snack and inspired discussions.

Students of many disciplines, lecturers, employees of the university and other interested people are visiting the lectures. Up to now we have already welcomed Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard, Klaus Rajewski, Jules Hoffmann and Stefan Hell.

In 2007, the Poppelsdorfer Schlossgespräche were awarded with the Alumni-Gesellschaft Prize of the University of Bonn for being the best student initiative.

Any interested person is warmly invited to be a guest at the lectures.
