The meeting will have two keynote lectures. One, given by Poul Nissen, a professor at the University of Aarhus in Denmark and director of the Center for Membrane Pumps in Cells and Disease, will focus on recent P-ATPase structures and enzyme mechanisms. The other talk will cover equally exciting developments in the role of Na,K-ATPase as a signaling molecule with roles in cell survival and development in the brain and kidney. This talk will be given by Anita Aperia, a professor emerita at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden.
