Second Metrion Webinar – Professor Stephen Tucker
Defective X-gating caused by de novo mutations in the TASK-1 K2P channel (KCNK3) underlies a developmental disorder with sleep apnea
We are delighted to present the second speaker in our webinar series – Professor Stephen Tucker from the Department of Physics at the University of Oxford. Stephen speaking on the topic of the TASK-1 K2P channel and his talk will be entitled “Defective X-gating caused by de novo mutations in the TASK-1 K2P channel (KCNK3) underlies a developmental disorder with sleep apnea”.
The webinar took place on Thursday 16th September 2021 at 16:00 BST.
Professor Stephen Tucker
Stephen’s research is focussed on understanding the intimate relationship between ion channel structure and function. The objectives are to understand how and why ion channels do what they do i.e. to understand their molecular mechanism of operation at an atomic level as well as understanding their role in physiology and disease.
