Receptor dimerisation and higher order oligomerisation regulates signalling by a wide variety of transmembrane receptors. We discuss how agent-based modelling (ABM) combined with advanced microscopy and structural studies can provide new insights into the regulation of clustering, including spatial considerations, revealing novel targets for therapeutic intervention.
