Targeting GPCR to generate life, preserve the environment and improve animal breeding: technological and pharmacological challenges

This conference is organized by STUDIUM as part of hosting two foreign researchers at the Joint Physiology of Reproduction and Behaviour Research Unit (INRA, CNRS, Université de Tours, IFCE). The conference will focus on 'GPCR' (G protein-coupled receptors), a protein-coupled receptor involved in animal and human reproduction.

Reproduction is the key event in biology and G protein-coupled receptors (GPCR) are deeply involved therein. Mastering the processes governing animal and human reproduction ensures sustainable animal breading and allows fertility control, infertility therapy and demographic equilibrium. This interdisciplinary workshop analyzes the current challenges around this theme and, bringing the GPCR in the center of the scene, envisions novel pathways not only to optimize reproduction at large but also to reduce the environmental and societal burden of the current technologies.
