Kv7 Channels Symposium 2023
Kv7 Channels Symposium


KCNQ-encoded Kv7 channels hold a special place in many people’s hearts because they are major regulators of cellular function in the heart, brain, smooth muscle, skeletal muscle and epithelia and Kv7 dysfunction  is implicated in many diseases including arrhythmia, epilepsy, deafness and hypertension.

The last four years have seen the emergence of structural information and new pathophysiological roles for Kv7 channels, as well as the expansion of the arsenal of Kv7 modulators which represent potential therapeutic tools for the treatment of neuropsychiatric disorders as diverse as sleep and behavioural disorders, as well as urinary incontinence, erectile dysfunction, asthma, pre-term labour
and constipation. 

This symposium will showcase the myriad aspects of Kv7 research, with emphasis on emerging research areas. Contributions from leading academics and pharmaceutical company representatives will provide a programme that will stimulate all attendees irrespective of their interest in these fascinating and enigmatic channels. 

The 2nd International Kv7 Channels Symposium will again be hosted at the University of Naples Federico II in the beautiful surroundings of the bay of Naples, Italy.

Venue: Congress Center of “Federico II”, University of Naples
Location: Aula Magna Partenope Via Partenope 36, Naples.
Country: Italy
