There are only a few days left to submit an abstract for the Biophysical Society thematic meeting, Emerging Concepts in Ion Channel Biophysics, which will be held October 10–13, 2017, in Mexico City, Mexico.  Abstract submission is free.  Be a part of our first ever meeting in 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. The program will address  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 and 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 a variety of approaches to study the physiology of ion channels and transporters, stimulating interactions, and collaborations among them.

Abstract Deadline: May 26, 2017          |        Early Registration Deadline:  June 23, 2017
