Conference Summary

Launched in 2014, this FASEB Science Research Conference (SRC) is the only scientific meeting that strictly focuses on these two protein families, G protein-coupled receptor kinase (GRK) and arrestin. The conference is dedicated to exploring 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.
