ONCOgenic Receptor Network of Excellence and Training 2.0

Project description

The encore to a successful training network is honing in on new targets for cancer therapies

Proteins are ubiquitous but they are not all created equal. G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are the largest and most diverse proteins in the mammalian genome. They are a class of transmembrane proteins that transduce extracellular stimuli or messengers into intracellular signals through interaction of their intracellular domains with G-proteins. The chemokine receptors CXCR4 and ACKR3 are GPCRs that bind the chemokine CXCL12 and they have been implicated in cancer, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. They are a major target of numerous drug discovery efforts yet their exact mechanisms and roles remain unclear. The ONCORENET2.0 initiative plans to find out more and target new therapies with the help of 15 early stage researchers and recent pioneering work in the field of GPCRs.
