Highlights and Discussion


Let's embrace the next generation

Aiming to establish a multidisciplinary network of researchers in the field of G protein-coupled, receptor-mediated signal transduction and a sustainable culture of community-accepted best practice principles, ERNEST CA18133 puts a strong focus on incorporating the next generation of scientific investigators. 

A platform for all career levels

With the 2nd ERNEST Training School, we aim to provide a platform for researchers among all career levels who are eager to expand their knowledge on state-of-the-art technologies and methodologies to propel their own research and promote scientific collaboration.

Share and exchange knowledge

Over a period of two weeks, a panel of renowned researchers in their field together with advanced early career investigators will share their knowledge. Each day will be dedicated to a certain topic, from specific techniques and their application in different aspects of GPCR resarch, to various aspects of career development and funding opportunities.
