RAB Symposium 2018

2nd Symposium on Regulatory Autoantibodies Targeting G-Protein-Coupled Receptors

Lübeck, September 28-30, 2018

Dear Sir or Madam,
Dear colleagues,

It is a great pleasure to announce the second symposium on regulatory autoantibodies targeting G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) in Lübeck.

GPCRs are involved in a variety of physiological and pathophysiological processes. So far, much effort has been made on anti-GPCR drug discovery with a focus on the development of small molecules and monoclonal antibodies for the treatment of cancer, infection, metabolic disorders or inflammatory diseases. Recently, functional autoantibodies against GPCRs were identified in various diseases associated with pathogenesis, uncovering a potential new field of therapeutic intervention. Thus, the aim of this symposium is to combine the current knowledge about the role of GPCRs in different pathologies, their mode of action and state-of-the-art research techniques to identify common fundamental pathways that can be transferred to other disease entities with similar manifestations.

I cordially invite you to participate in this inspiring symposium with outstanding speakers from the field of GPCR research and constructive discussions as well as poster sessions. I look forward to welcome you to the beautiful Hanseatic City of Lübeck and encourage you and your colleagues to contribute to this exciting meeting.

Welcome to Lübeck.
