9th UK GAP Junction Meeting

12 December 2016

University of Warwick, UK

A Biochemical Society Focused Meeting


In the UK and Europe there is a thriving research community in the fields of gap junctions, connexions and pannexins, hemichannels and their involvement in multiple disease states e.g skin disorders, cancers and cardiovascular disease. 

This meeting aims to not only provide a critical platform for early career scientists and researchers to present their research to established scientists via oral presentation, but will attract delegates from the UK and Europe to provide an excellent networking opportunity promoting collaboration between research groups.

We will be joined by invited speakers Dr Nathalie Guerineau, Institute of Functional Genomics, Montpellier, France, who will present her latest data on how stress alters gap junction coupling in the adrenal medulla and the consequences of this for hormonal secretion, and Professor Marc Chanson, University of Geneva, Switzerland, who will discuss his latest data examining the aetiology of cystic fibrosis and how quorum sensing molecules  produced by Pseudomonas aeruginosa interfere with the function of gap junction sin airway epithelial cells.

Abstract deadline: Monday 24 October 2016


Registration now open
