Adhesion GPCR workshop 2022
Opened for registration to aGPCR workshop 2022
May 6th-8th 2022
Organized under the auspices of The Danish Society of Pharmacology. Sponsored by the Carlsberg Foundation, the Novo Nordisk Foundation, and the Nordic scientific journal Basic & Clinical Pharmacology & Toxicology.
The 10th Adhesion GPCR Workshop will bring together established and emerging scientists in the field of adhesion GPCR research and their vast diversity of biological functions and intriguing signaling mechanisms. The 2022 meeting will continue the tradition of this informal workshop with scientists from all over the world.
Sessions will emphasize on young and established scientists and their contribution within the field, and all speakers are encouraged to present cutting edge insights based on a wide range of experimental approaches and model systems, with the goal of fostering exchange of the most exciting new concepts and data in the area of signaling and activation, structure biology, development and biological functions.
This biannual workshop is a can't-miss opportunity to engage with established scientists, postdocs, and students to learn about the most exciting new concepts in adhesion GPCRs.

The meeting is held at the Panum Insitute, Blegdamsvej 3B, 2200 Copenhagen N, Denmark.
Getting to Denmark/Copenhagen
Copenhagen is served by Copenhagen Airport (CPH). For a list of all flights to Copenhagen Airport (CPH), see their website. Airlines serving Copenhagen include Scandinavian and Sterling. For train/bus connections within Denmark, use Rejseplanen (Route Planner). For train connections within Europe, try German railways DB Bahn.
Getting to Panum
Getting to Panum from Copenhagen Airport by public transportation:
Take the Metro (look for the big M) from the Airport to Nørreport Station (10-15 minutes). The Metro departs every 4-6 minutes.
Ordinary trains departs from the airport Terminal 3 every 10-20 minutes. Nørreport Station is just after the central station "København H" (4 stops, 15 minutes) in the direction Copenhagen/Helsingør - the opposite (wrong!) direction is Malmö/Sweden.
Nørreport Station is in central Copenhagen; most hotels are nearby, and the Panum Institute is easily reached by bus. The details are given below.
You need to buy a ticket in the airport terminal before boarding the train (otherwise, you could be fined). Read more about tickets below.
Arriving by Inter-City Train
If you arrive by Inter-City train to Copenhagen, the final stop will usually be the central station København H; take one of the very frequent local trains to Nørreport station (2 stops by S-train), and follow the directions from there (your Inter-City ticket is valid for this as well).
From Nørreport Station to Panum
Locate the bus stop of the busses 185, 150S and 6A (it is in the northern part of the station area, on the same side of the road as the exits for the S-train). All three busses have Nørreport as their final stop, so there is no question of direction. Ask the driver to drop you off at “Rigshospitalet Syd (Tagensvej)”. The Panum Institute is the big red brick building across the street.
Arriving by Taxi
A taxi from the airport to the Panum Institute or hotels costs approx. 300 DKK (40 EUR). A taxi from Nørreport Station to the Panum Institute or hotels costs <100DKK.
You can use the route planner to find out how to get to the Panum Institute by public transportation.
Tickets for Public Transportation
General tickets for public transport
All busses and trains (incl. metro) use the same ticket system, so only one ticket is needed for a journey by bus and train. It is 3 zones from the airport to Copenhagen/the Panum Institute. From the hotels to the Panum Institute it is only 1 zone, but you cannot by tickets for less than 2 zones. Buy tickets in the bus (cash only, preferably exact change) or at ticket stands/machines at the train stations. Or buy via your mobile phone. Read about buying tickets here.
If you plan on taking the bus several times during your stay, it might be cheaper to use a travel card (Rejsekort) than buying single tickets.
The City Pass gives you unlimited access to buses, trains and metro in the centre of Copenhagen and to and from the airport (zones 1, 2, 3 and 4). You can buy a 24-hour or a 72-hour City Pass. The FlexCard allows you unlimited travel by bus, train and Metro for seven days in the number of zones you pay for. If you want to visit some of Copenhagen's attractions, you should consider a Copenhagen Card, which entitles you to unlimited bus, metro, and train travel and gives you a discount or free entrance to many major attractions.
We recommend M18 Hotel or Sleep in Heaven hostel, which are both pleasant and inexpensive options.
Sleep in Heaven will give a 10% discount on the booking. You simply need to write ‘Panum’ in comment or write your full name in ‘First name’ field and ‘Panum’ in the ‘Last name’ field during the booking process.
- Access from airport: Take metro M2 from the airport and stop at Forum (direction Vanløse) and walk 12 min (900 m)
- From hostel to Panum: Only 17 min walk from Panum/Mærsk tower or bus ride (1A) of 12 min
Other inexpensive alternatives are:
- Hotel Nora (650m away from Panum)
- Hotel Jørgensen (1,4km from Panum and many bus options directly to Panum).
- Globalhagen (Hostel, 550m away from Panum)
- Avenue Hotel Copenhagen (1,3 km from Panum or 1A bus directly to Panum)
- Hotel Kong Arthur and Ibsens hotel are more expensive alternatives.
We remain optimistic that we will be able to have the workshop in-person. We will continue to assess evolving public health guidance regarding large gatherings and will provide additional information as we get closer to the workshop.
We have the great opportunity to publish a special issue in the Nordic scientific journal Basic & Clinical Pharmacology & Toxicology following the conference with characterizing the leading knowledge and issues we face within the aGPCR field. All conference participants are invited to publish mini reviews or original articles to this issue following the conference. The publication is free of charge.
