Scientific Meeting, 12-15 September 2022, at the Victoria Gallery and Museum, Liverpool.


Small G proteins of the Ras superfamily regulate a plethora of cell signalling pathways and impact on most biological processes. Deregulation of these proteins and their pathways often results in disease, such as cancer and genetic disorders, and plays a role in infection by pathogenic organisms. The founding member of this superfamily of proteins, Ras, drives ~20% of human cancers and its inhibition is a goal of global importance.

Sessions at the meeting will cover the most exciting, cutting-edge topics in small G protein signalling:

  • Small G proteins in disease: challenges and progress
  • Post-translational modifications, localisation and compartmentalisation
  • Small G protein function in context
  • Regulators and modulators
  • Downstream signalling
  • Systems analysis of small G protein networks
