August 14-19, 2022

This FASEB Science Research Conference (SRC) focuses on the intrinsic molecular functions of ion channel proteins and the essential roles of ion channel-associated regulatory proteins in controlling channel biophysical properties, subcellular localization, trafficking, and downstream signaling.

The conference brings together academic investigators and partners in clinical, industrial, and governmental organizations to cover a range of topics from fundamental biology to translational applications.

The conference's main themes are: 1) Structure-function relationship of ion channels based on direct 3D structure determination and computational modeling; 2) Dynamics of ion channel interactions with cellular proteome; 3) Novel tools to probe ion channel structure, regulation, and interactions; 4) Channelopathies and therapeutic opportunities.

Conference sessions will present the latest research and foster discussion on:
  • Structure-function relationship of ion channels
  • Molecular modeling of ion channels
  • Proteomics and post-translational modifications of ion channels
  • Molecular tools in studying ion channels
  • Organelle channels and transporters
  • Dynamics in membrane organization and ion channel trafficking
  • Ion channels in disease
  • Ion channels as therapeutic targets
  • Interrogating membrane dynamics and channel distribution

The conference covers nine sessions with eight selected abstract presentations and a “Meet the Experts” roundtable discussion with scientists from academia, industry, and government.
