Meeting Description

The Gordon Research Seminar on Phosphorylation & G-Protein Mediated Signaling Networks is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

The goal of this meeting is to provide a forum for the exchange of new concepts in the field of kinase and GPCR signaling, with a particular emphasis on novel and quantitative approaches to elucidating physiological and pathological signaling cascades and their interactions. The GRS will additionally bring together young investigators to foster opportunities for future collaborations, and will provide attendees with the most recent advances in this field prior to the Phosphorylation & G-Protein Mediated Signaling Gordon Research Conference.

This GRS was held in conjunction with the "Phosphorylation and G-Protein Mediated Signaling Networks" Gordon Research Conference (GRC). Refer to the associated GRC program page for more information.
