The British Pharmacological Society are delighted to announce the 10th International Meeting on the CGRP Family of Peptides, to be held in St John’s College, Cambridge, UK, in April 2022. This is the latest in a series of meetings that began in 1991 and have tracked the emergence of the CGRP family and their receptors as viable druggable targets. The last meeting was held in 2018 in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA and attracted over 100 delegates. Since then, there have been dramatic developments in receptor structure/molecular/signalling pharmacology and pathophysiology/therapeutics especially for treatment of migraine. The meeting will highlight these areas and new developing areas concerning the CGRP family.

The meeting will be held over two days and will be open to both in-person and virtual attendance. Presentation of new data by posters and oral communication is positively encouraged! We are happy to consider any work on the pharmacology and pathophysiology of CGRP, calcitonin, amylin and the adrenomedullins.

Previous meetings have been pivotal in building collaborations between academic, industrial, and clinical researchers. We anticipate informative presentations and lively discussion at this meeting.

Meeting topics

Topics will include molecular pharmacology of receptors; the wider role of RAMPs; pathophysiology of the peptides including in neuroinflammation, and migraine, the cardiovascular system, stem cells and angiogenesis eating and metabolism and new drugs to target the peptides and their receptors. There will also be open sessions for discussion of controversial data and receptor nomenclature as well as CGRP and Covid.
