We invite you to attend the 9th International CGRP Family Peptide Conference to be held from 13th - 15th February, 2018 in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA.
We will discuss recent advances in the pharmacology, physiology and therapeutics of members of the CGRP family. The conference will cover new structural data on CGRP family receptors, development of new drugs and clinical trials, and suggestions for novel therapeutic applications of the peptides or their agonists.
The CGRP family peptides are involved in a wide range of pathophysiological conditions: migraine, obesity/diabetes, infertility, cardiovascular diseases, Alzheimer disease, inflammatory disorders, cancer and bone diseases. The basic receptor pharmacology of the agents involving family B GPCRs and the RAMP family of accessory proteins means that the area is also at the forefront of molecular pharmacology.
