The first COMPARE on-line ECR GPCR Symposium took place over two afternoons on Tuesday 19th and Wednesday 20th May 2020. Due to COVID19 the meeting was hosted on Teams, which proved a successful platform for the majority of delegates.

We would like to thank the event speakers (listed below) for agreeing to participate and for providing excellent talks and slides, and the poster presenters, which sparked some very interesting questions from the audience;

Day One
Aurelien Rizk, InterAx Biotech
Raphael Haider, Uni of Jena
Shannon O’Brien, Uni of Birmingham
Brad Hoare, Uni of of Nottingham
Reggie Bosma, Vrije University

Day two
Matthew Harris, Uni of Cambridge
Liz Rosethorne, Uni of Nottingham
Miriam Scarpa, Uni of Glasgow
David Favara, Uni of Cambridge
Simone Prömel, Uni of Leipzig
Ines Liebcher, Uni of Leipzig

Registrations were received from over 200 delegates across 20 countries, which was an amazing response considering the short time the symposium was advertised following lock-down.

Following the success of this meeting and positive feedback, it has been agreed that COMPARE ECRs will host a follow up meeting in September 2020. 

If you would like to register your interest in attending or presenting your research to the GPCR community, please contact Mark Soave ( or Laura Kilpatrick (
