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.
