4GPCRnet – International Symposium
SEPTEMBER 26-29, 2022 (Leipzig, Germany)                                                                    

4GPCRnet meeting bringing together four of the biggest GPCR networks in Europe for a joint meeting in Leipzig.

Four of the biggest European networks on GPCR research (COST Actions Adher’n Rise and ERNEST plus DFG-funded SFB1423 and FOR2372) had joined forces to organized the international meeting 4GPCRnet, which tokes place from 26th-29th September 2022 in the beautiful city of Leipzig in Germany.

We aim to connect renowned international experts of the field with early career ‘rising stars’. The event will take place in the heart of Leipzig, which offers a colorful mixture of culture and vivid social life.


Dear colleagues, dear friends,

It was our great pleasure to host you all in Leipzig for the 4GPCRnet Symposium.

Weeks have past since the event took place, but the great science, exciting discussions, and long-awaited rekindling of many friendships remain! We would like to thank you all for participating and contributing your excellent science and enthusiasm. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive, especially from our young scientists, many of whom got to experience their first face-to-face conference in Leipzig.

We trust you all returned home safe and healthy, and we look forward to meeting you again in the near future – wherever in the world that may be!

As a memento of our fun and inspiring times in Leipzig, please have a look at the folder with the following link: https://4gpcrnet.de/gallery.

All the best,
and on behalf of the organizing team,

Prof. Dr. Annette Beck-Sickinger
