Spotlight on Science Meetings, Conferences and Events brings you information on the following event: Ion Channel Regulation (2017)
This SRC will highlight the latest research on mechanisms of ion channel regulation and its impact on the physiology of diverse cell types. Regulation of ion channel activity is essential for physiological functions including neuronal firing, synaptic transmission, hormonal secretion, muscle contraction, and cell migration. A major goal of this conference is to stimulate discourse, seed new ideas, and facilitate collaboration in ways that will accelerate new discoveries about ion channel regulation at both the basic and translational levels.
The program consists of nine scientific sessions and a keynote address, as well as two breakout sessions and lunches focused on trainee career development. Scientific sessions are organized around themes, rather than ion channel subtype, to foster crosstalk between fields, and will cover a variety of topics.
- Sensory systems and pain
- Regulation of neuronal excitability
- Regulation of gene expression
- Ion channels in disease
- Ion channel structure and drug development
- Recent advances in imaging and ion channel cell biology
- Regulation of the cardiovascular system and skeletal muscle
- Regulation of ER Ca2+ stores and other organelles
- Celebrating Bill Catterall and ion channels
Presentations in these sessions will be made by both new, up-and-coming investigators as well as established leaders in the ion channel field, including several members of the National Academy of Sciences. Each session will also include two short-talks to be selected from the abstracts, with an emphasis on presentations by graduate students, postdoctoral trainees, and junior faculty.
