Ion channels are important targets for therapeutic intervention due to their extensive roles in human physiology and the pathophysiology of disease. Many successful drugs targeting this gene family have been discovered for diseases such as hypertension, epilepsy and neuropathic pain.
Who should attend
Scientists from industry and academia interested in the therapeutic potential of ion channels. The organising committee particularly welcomes attendance and participation of students working in the field of ion channel research.
• Medicinal chemistry case studies of ion channels as therapeutic targets
