Summary

August 21-26, 2022

Launched in 2014, this FASEB Science Research Conference (SRC) is the only scientific meeting that strictly focuses on these two protein families and explores their role in biology, from high resolution structures to cellular based systems to in vivo models.

The conference brings together an international, interdisciplinary group of researchers who study the molecular structures, mechanisms of action, cellular functions, and in vivo roles of GRKs and arrestins in signal transduction.

It provides a key forum for scientific exchange between established investigators, new investigators, postdocs, and graduate students studying various aspects of GRK and arrestin biology to generate innovative ideas, collaboration, and solutions for outstanding questions in the field.

Program

The conference's main themes are: 1) Explore how GRKs and arrestins function in signal transduction through high resolution structures, molecular dynamics, and the spatiotemporal behavior of these protein in cells; 2) Evaluate the role of GRKs and arrestins in signaling and the potential to modulate this signaling by use of biased ligands and allosteric modulators; 3) Examine the in vivo role of GRKs and arrestins in health and disease.

Conference sessions will present the latest research and foster discussion on:
  • G Protein-coupled kinase and arrestin structure and function
  • Spatiotemporal aspects of GRK and arrestin function
  • G protein-coupled receptor trafficking by beta- and alpha-arrestins
  • Biased signaling: Allosteric modulators and in vivo implication on drugs of abuse
  • GRKs and arrestins in cardiovascular physiology and pathophysiology
  • G protein-independent signaling: Novel insights
  • Role of GRKs and arrestins in neurodegenerative and inflammatory diseases

The conference covers eight sessions and three poster sessions. The program includes a “Meet the Experts” roundtable session for postdocs, graduate students, and young faculty to engage with experts in the field offering insights in a wide range of topics such as starting a lab, work life balance, and challenges in the field.

The conference also features three Career Development Workshops: “How to Network Effectively and Promote Your Scientific Career,” “Careers: Academia or Industry?” and “Grants and Papers: How to Write Successfully.”
