BioMedical Transporters 2015
The 9th international BioMedical Transporters Conference ”Membrane transporters-from basic science to drug discovery” will be held from August9-13, 2015 in Lugano, Switzerland. Dr. Yuichi Sugiyama will give a talk as the opening keynote speaker. The conference is a biennial conference and this will be the 9th conference.
Prof. Matthias A. Hediger, University of Bern, has taken the lead in the conference since the 1st conference through concentration on the basis. Recently, sessions which are related medical drug searching and development are increased rapidly.
The conference will cover the basic and the applied transporter research as noted in attached program and its subtitle “Membrane transporters – from basic science to drug discovery”
The session topics are as below.
（1）Membrane transporters and channels in drug discovery
（2）Global analysis of the role of transporters in pathophysiology and therapy
（3）Membrane transporter research ー assay and drug development technologies
（4）Genetics and epigenetics of transporters in context of diseases
（5）Drug transporters and drug delivery
（6）Structure, function and imaging of transporters
（7）Translation of transporter research - understanding/prediction of how drugs behave in the body
（8）Academia meets industry (talks and podium discussion)
（9）Therapeutic relevance of ion exchangers
（10）Neurotransmitter transporters in health and disease
（11）Interplay of organic cation transporters (OCTs, MATEs) in pharmacotherapy
Especially, number（8）”Academia meets industry (talks and podium discussion)“ is expected to be the platform which promotes the exchanges between industrial world and academic world.
