The meeting’s main themes are: 1) Develop novel approaches for studying calcium signaling in cells; 2) Decipher the role of calcium signatures in health and disease; 3) Understand how membrane contact sites control cellular homeostasis.
Conference sessions will present the latest research and foster discussion on:
Novel approaches for studying Ca2+ signaling in cells
Membrane contact sites - novel signaling hubs
Ca2+ influx pathways
Ca2+ and contraction
Molecular mechanisms of Ca2+channels and signaling proteins
Neuronal and glial Ca2+ signaling
Ca2+ signaling at the interface between ER and mitochondria or lysosomes
In addition to the closing keynote lecture byRichard Lewis, PhD(Stanford University), this conference will feature major sessions with estimated 35 oral presentations, 15 short talks selected from submitted abstracts, and 3 poster sessions.
All sessions and presentations will be live in a virtual environment. View the tentative program agenda here.
