Keynote Presentation

Michel Bouvier, RIC-Université de Montréal
Folding, trafficking and functional selectivity of G protein-coupled receptors; new targets for drug discovery?

Dr. Bouvier is a world leader in GPCR function and screening. He has worked on a myriad of aspects of GPCR biology including B-arrestin mediated signaling, ligand bias, and oligomerization. In addition to his work on the fundamental aspects of GPCRs, he and his lab are pioneering novel multiplexing technologies for screening.

Final Agenda Available (download pdf file) »

Join us for a complimentary satellite symposium featuring presentations from internationally renowned scientists who will describe their cutting-edge research and the application of novel technologies and approaches to advance therapeutic drug discovery.

Network with Colleagues

The satellite symposium will provide opportunities for participants to enjoy informal networking with other drug discovery experts during presentations and session breaks. We expect a broad representation from many scientific disciplines and encourage those investigators who are new to chemical biology and drug discovery to attend.

Tour the Screening Facility

Before the presentations, you are invited to tour Sanford-Burnham’s ultra-high-throughput screening facility and enjoy a reception featuring light refreshments and local cuisine. Transportation to and from the SLAS conference and exhibit hall will be provided for registered attendees.


Registration is open, but space is limited!

Registration is free. Local cuisine and beverages will be provided. Complete contact details are required for proper registration.
