Young Life Scientists Symposium 2014: Current Progress on the Physiology & Pharmacology of TRP channels

Young Life Scientists Symposium: Current Progress on the Physiology & Pharmacology of TRP channels
4 October 2014, King’s College London, UK
The TRP (Transient Receptor Potential) superfamily of cation channels plays a critical role in sensory physiology, functions as signal integrators and is activated by different stimuli. There is currently a distinct therapeutic potential for drugs targeting TRP channels in various diseases. This symposium will provide an up-to-date review on the subject, from world-leading experts and allow young scientists to attend and present their latest research in TRP channels. Registration is free and open. Abstract submission closes on 31 August 2014.
