The Department of Drug Science and Technology of Turin University in collaboration with NIS and Scuola di Dottorato in Neuroscienze dell'Università di Torino presents the workshop
Ion Channel in cell physiology and disease: new perspectives and biosensor-based approaches.
The workshop is a Nis Colloquium serie and is going to be held on June the 28th and 29th 2019 at Torino Esposizioni Palace (Classroom: Aula Gialla)
Although more than 50 years have passed since the discoveries of Hodgkin and Huxley, ion channels are still at the centre of numerous debates about the regulation of cellular functions under pathological and physiological conditions. Recent decades have been characterised by the considerable development of innovative and challenging methodologies, starting from the Patch Clamp technique proposed in the early 1970s by E. Neher and B. Sakmann, that have brought much deeper knowledge of the role that ion channels play.
This workshop aims to describe the state of art of ion channels function in cell physiology and disease. Novel tools of investigation and the use of biosensors for multiparameter cell monitoring will also be debated.
Participation is free but is necessary complete the registration form before 06/24/2019
