Sign up for Sophion's annual Ion Channel Seminar in Tokyo

Sophion Bioscience KK will hold the annual Ion Channel Seminar on Thursday, November 2, 2023.

The educational lecture will be given by Professor Susumu Oya of Nagoya City University on the theme of  “Cancer Cells and Cancer Immune Cells.” Professor Oya gave a talk at the Ion Channel Modulation Symposium (ICMS®), UK, in June of this year, attracting many European researchers’ interest.

In addition, we plan to introduce case studies of the use of our products (as research in the pain field, applications to DRG Neuron at Yale University in the US, and various ion channel assays at Metrion Bioscience).
