Research Description

Using a protein family specific platform, the GPCR Network will work closely with the GPCR community to determine the high resolution structure and function of GPCRs distributed broadly across the phylogenetic family tree. The easily accessible and open data will create a dynamic and informative GPCR-Network of value to the entire scientific community. Researchers/Scientists interested in collaborating with the GPCR network on a receptor that they are working on should contact us via the link provided below (or )
