EMBO/FEBS Lecture Course: 'Biophysics of channels and transporters'

Posted on Apr 1, 2014 2:01:00 PM

Biophysics of Channels and Transporters

Lecture - Erice, Sicily, Italy

The International School of Biophysics in Erice, Sicily has hosted a course on “Channels and Transporters” four times since 2002. This will be the fifth time it is held.

The intention of the course is to bring together experts in transporter physiology, ion channel biophysics, and structural biology both to teach and to discuss the structure and function of channels and transporters.

Lectures will include didactic presentations on the fundamentals of ion channels and primary and secondary transporters, as well as practical information on patch clamp, biochemical assays, protein purification, X-ray crystallography, molecular dynamics, drug interactions with transporters and channels, and fluorescence microscopy.
Experts will demonstrate the role of channels and transporters in human disease and show how this knowledge has been translated into the clinic. We anticipate each lecturer will provide into an initial didactic session that introduces the topic and provides essential background and methodological information, followed by a state-of-the-art presentation in their field of research.
