Emerging Concepts in Ion Channel Biophysics
October 10 - 13, 2017
Mexico City, Mexico


This meeting will cover recent discoveries pertaining to the study of the structure and the function of ion channels and transporters and will bring together a diverse group of experts who use precise techniques to study an assortment of ion channels. Themes that will be addressed include leading knowledge on the function of voltage-, ligand- and mechanically gated ion channels and transporters, as well as the use of structural, optical, electrophysiological, biochemical, and modeling techniques to delimit fine structural interactions within ion channels as well as to study their regulation by different molecules.

The meeting will provide a positive environment for feedback and discussion between leaders in the field and junior researchers and students using different approaches to study the physiology of ion channels and transporters, stimulating interactions and collaborations among them.


Abstract Submission Deadline: May 26, 2017
