Event Name

Ion Channels. Gordon Research Seminar

Start Date 5th Jul 2014
End Date 6th Jul 2014

Channel Structure, Function, Disease and Drugs

The Gordon Research Seminar on Ion Channels is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

The 2014 Ion Channels GRS will bring together post-docs, graduate students, and undergraduates from diverse backgrounds to present recent data and discuss the quantitative analysis of ion channels and ion transporters. Scientific sessions will focus on classical and emerging concepts related to structure, function, regulation, and dynamics of diverse channel types, with an eye on how these complex molecular characteristics integrate to generate cellular excitability and control cellular and organ physiology. Special attention will be given to the use of emerging analytical tools and the next generation of ion channel drugs. In addition to presenting, discussing their data, and sharing research experiences with their peers "in the trenches", young researchers will have the opportunity to discuss the next leap in their career with mentors in the field - whether that’s choosing a postdoc, becoming an independent investigator, or transitioning to industry and other fields.
