This popular meeting occurred for the fifth time, returning after a 2-year break, with some 150 people attending to fill the maximum capacity. The proceedings included 22 oral presentations and 15 posters, altogether representing 14 countries. The topics covered voltage-gated potassium, calcium, and sodium channels as well as ligand-gated and mechanogated (piezo) ion channels. The relevant range of physiologies and pathophysiologies covered included taste, pain, neurodegenerative diseases, epilepsy, atrial fibrillation, Parkinson's disease, respiratory disease, and cancer. Speakers also regularly discussed possible clinical applications of their data. In addition, the symposium covered the latest automated patch clamp technologies with exhibits.
