Ion Channel Ion
Modulation Symposium 2017

Clare College, Memorial Court, Cambridge, United Kingdom

21-22 June 2017


Wednesday and Thursday 21st and 22nd June, 2017 Sophion will be arranging and hosting the second Ion Channel Modulation Symposium at Clare College in Cambridge (UK).


The initial idea of the Symposium was to gather a mix of people from academia, CROs and pharma to discuss the science of ion channel modulations. With 130 delegates and 20 speakers at our meeting in June 2016 it seemed as if there was a need for a meeting like this in Europe.

See you in June.
