Invitation to a Project Progress Report Meeting at Miraikan, Tokyo (May 9, 2008)

We warmly invite you all to attend "2008 Workshop of ERATO Iwata Human Receptor Crystallography Project in Japan" on Friday, May 9, 2008. Chris Tate of MRC Cambridge will give a presentation on Beta 1 Adrenergic Receptor, a GPCR, as a guest speaker.
