About the meeting

Ion channels are an important class of therapeutic drug targets, and mutations in ion channel genes are found to be responsible for an increasing number of diseases. Because of this, ion channels remain an underrepresented target class for drug discovery. While conventional electrophysiological techniques permit the most detailed and direct study of ion channel function, they are limited due to the manual nature of the method and their low throughput.

The advent of higher throughput automated electrophysiology systems has begun to change the face of ion channel drug discovery.

Since the inaugural “Drug Discovery for Ion Channels” satellite meeting, there have been many advances in ion channel drug discovery including new instrumentation and techniques.

This year’s meeting will highlight presentations from users of automated electrophysiology instrumentation as well as other speakers in the field of ion channel drug discovery, including several academic speakers.
