International symposium in honour of Dr. Paul Janssen

Beerse, Belgium * 20-22 October 1996

Call for Papers - deadline: June 20

The Janssen Research Foundation has decided to honour Dr. Paul Janssen with
an international symposium on G-protein coupled receptors.

In addition to invited lecturers, the symposium will feature poster
presentations. The selection for participation will be based on the quality
of the submitted abstracts.

Attendance is restricted to 120 persons.

The selected posters will be discussed with the participants, and two
under-35 scientists will receive the CMD Award offered by the Centre for
Molecular Design.

A letter confirming the acceptance of the abstract and a registration form
will be sent before the end of July. The registration fee, including
accommodation and local transport, is BEF 7,000 and there is a charge of
BEF 1,000 for the symposium dinner and concert.
