Ion Channels Trimming the Brain

International Symposium “Ion channels trimming the brain” was held at Bogomoletz Institute of Physiology (Kiev, Ukraine) on September 24-26, 2015.

The Symposium was dedicated to several important dates:

  • 40 years of intracellular perfusion,
  • 35 years after a discovery of proton receptor and
  • 70th anniversary of Academia Europaeamember Oleg Krishtal.

The symposium was supported by Academia Europaea.

More information were available here.
