Special Symposium: Na,K-ATPase and related P-type ATPases: structure, biology and medicine

Na,K-ATPase and related P-type ATPases: structure, biology and medicine
Sept. 27 – Oct. 2, 2011
Talk and poster abstract deadline: July 1, 2011
Early registration deadline: July 1, 2011
Asilomar Conference Grounds, Pacific Grove, Calif.

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.

Kathleen Sweadner (sweadner@helix.mgh.harvard.edu) is an associate professor of cellular and molecular physiology at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. The meeting’s co-organizers are Svetlana Lutsenko (Johns Hopkins University), Hiroshi Suzuki (Asahikawa Medical College), Zijian Xie (University of Toledo) and Jacob Sznajder (Northwestern University).
