Spotlight on Science Meetings, Conferences and Events brings you information on the following event: Gordon Research Conference: Organellar Channels & Transporters
This conference is dedicated to ion channels and transporters of intracellular membranes, including mitochondria, endosomes, lysosomes, vacuoles, endoplasmic reticulum, nuclei, peroxisomes and chloroplasts, in both animals and plants. This new GRC series represents the only conference solely dedicated to multidisciplinary studies of intracellular membrane transport proteins from plants and animals. It comes at an exciting time of this fast-developing field, which is attracting an expanding group of scientists interested in organelle membrane biology.
Topics of the conference will include molecular identification, biophysical characterization, structure, physiological relevance, regulation, discovery of interaction partners, targeting and pharmacology. A special session will focus on how dysfunctional ion/metabolite transport in organelles leads to common and rare human diseases, and how the activity of organellar channels/transporters can be manipulated to treat them. A session will be dedicated to emerging methodologies employed to unravel organellar ion fluxes with novel probes and another to the roles of channels/transporters in cross-talks between different organelles.
Each session will include slots for speakers (especially for early career investigators) selected from abstracts as well as late-breaking research.
