Event Details

Prof. David Brown Research Career

Celebration Symposium -

Ion channel regulation and neuronal physiology

Friday July 19 2013,

The Royal Society



Professor David Brown (FIBiol, FRS) has had a very distinguished career spanning over 50 years on the international stage. To celebrate his remarkable research career, a one day symposium on ‘Ion channel regulation and neuronal physiology’ will be held on July 19, 2013 in The Kohn Centre and Marble Hall.

This symposium will highlight new information on ion channels, particularly ‘M-channels’ or KV7/KCNQ channels, neuronal excitability, synaptic transmission and receptor function.
