The Society’s popular GART workshop aims to introduce ideas about the mechanisms of drug action and how these can be quantified in a physically meaningful way. It is aimed at postgraduate students and professional scientists working in any related subject area and is a great opportunity for networking.
The workshop consists of five lectures that provide a framework for tutorial discussions and quantitative exercises designed to develop understanding of the content. The lectures cover:

  • how the actions of agonists, antagonists and allosteric modulators can be quantitatively described using simple algebra
  • data analysis and interpretation of experimental data
  • concepts of efficacy, receptor constitutive activity and inverse agonism
  • mechanisms of antagonist action

Workshop dinner

A workshop dinner for speakers and delegates will be held on Thursday 4 July. This is an excellent opportunity to meet and network with both the speakers and other delegates in an informal setting.

Dinner cost: £25
