FASEB Science Research Conference: Ion Channel Regulation

Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology

ION CHANNEL REGULATION

Date: June 28 - July 3, 2015, Big Sky, MT

Organizers: Amy Lee, Peter Mohler

Bethesda, MD - The objective of the FASEB Science Research Conference entitled Ion Channel Regulation is to stimulate discourse and seed new ideas and collaborations focused on the physiological roles and regulation of ion channels at the basic and translational levels. The conference brings together scientists applying diverse technical and conceptual strategies. Topics include ion channel trafficking, roles in neuronal and cardiac excitability, therapeutic targeting of ion channels, and novel modes of ion channel regulation. By including trainees and new investigators as speakers and programming of career development workshops, the conference also aims to nurture the next generation of ion channel biologists, particularly women and under-represented minorities in science.

FASEB has announced a total of 34 Science Research Conferences (SRC) in 2015. Registration opens January 20, 2015. For more information about an SRC, view preliminary programs, or find a listing of all our 2015 SRCs, please visit http://www.faseb.org/SRC.

Since 1982, FASEB SRC has offered a continuing series of inter-disciplinary exchanges that are recognized as a valuable complement to the highly successful society meetings. Divided into small groups, scientists from around the world meet intimately and without distractions to explore new approaches to those research areas undergoing rapid scientific changes. In efforts to expand the SRC series, potential organizers are encouraged to contact SRC staff at SRC@faseb.org. Proposal guidelines can be found at http://www.faseb.org/SRC.

FASEB is composed of 27 societies with more than 120,000 members, making it the largest coalition of biomedical research associations in the United States. Our mission is to advance health and welfare by promoting progress and education in biological and biomedical sciences through service to our member societies and collaborative advocacy.
