e-IDG Symposium

Fall 2021

Illuminating the Druggable Genome (IDG), a NIH Common Fund sponsored consortium, is staring up the next round of their e-IDG Symposium series for the Fall of 2021. We encourage all to join the five 1-hour sessions to learn about exciting new developments from IDG’s research resulting in new experimental resources and digital tools illuminating the understudied targets in three main druggable protein families: GPCR, kinase and ion channels... and beyond. These e-IDG sessions will be hosted on Zoom Webinar platform and will feature two speakers giving 20 minute talks on a theme and allowing for some “mingling” and Live Q&A. Examples of themes are; Kinase, GPCR, Ion Channel, Informatic databases and tools, Machine Learning, Novel Technologies, Proteomics, Bio-Assays, Mouse resources, Compound screening. Advertisement and announcements of IDG e-Symposium Series will be made via IDG social media outlets, Newsletter, and website. The symposium sessions will be recorded and posted on IDG YouTube Channel and
