Metrion Biosciences is sponsoring and attending the 7th RSC-BMCS / SCI Symposium on Ion Channels as Therapeutic Targets, taking place on 27th and 28th March 2023 at the Wellcome Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambridge.

Metrion’s Dr Alexandra Pinggera will be presenting at this meeting and if you would to meet with her please email info@metrionbiosciences.com.

Metrion will have a booth at the event and we would be delighted if you would stop by to say hello to our Chief Commercial Officer, Nick Foster and Sales and Marketing Manager, Sophie Rose.

Summary: Ion channels are important targets for therapeutic intervention due to their extensive roles in human physiology and the pathophysiology of disease. Many successful drugs targeting this gene family have been discovered for diseases such as hypertension, epilepsy and neuropathic pain. 

This symposium, the 7th in an ongoing series, will showcase the most recent advances to aid the design of new ion channel therapeutics and promote interaction between scientists with a shared interest in the field of ion channel drug discovery.

Metrion Biosciences is attending the Sophion meeting entitled “Ion Channels in Cancer Biology from Signaling to Therapy”, taking place from 17th – 19th April 2023, in Capua, Italy.

Metrion will have a delegate attending the meeting and if you would like to meet with them, please email info@metrionbiosciences.com.

This international symposium will be an inaugural 3-day scientific event providing one kind of platform for critical analysis and to share latest cutting-edge research findings, most recent movements and latest upgrades inside the new field of “Ion Channels and Cancer”.

Traditionally, changes of ionic gradients are known to control a variety of rapid biological processes including action potentials and secretion. However, mounting evidence suggests a critical role of ion channels in cell proliferation and/or survival with implication in physiology as well as in diseases such as cancer. Nevertheless, the role of specific classes of ion channels in controlling these events and the possibility of targeting ion channels as anticancer therapy are still understudied.

The symposium will gather selected academics and industry-based scientists in the field of ion channels in cancer.
