Satellite Meeting
  • Membrane transporters and their Role in Human Disease

    A satellite meeting of the Sydney 2012 ASB/AuPS/PSNZ Meeting. 6th December 2012, University of NSW, Sydney. Australia

    The workshop will provide symposia on the physiological roles of membrane transport proteins, their biochemical, structural and biophysical properties, and their involvement in disease processes. Two world-leading experts in membrane structural biology, Prof. Robert Ford (University of Manchester, UK) and Prof. Peter Henderson (University of Leeds, UK) will be giving plenary lectures. In addition there are symposia from a broad range of Australia's leading membrane transport protein researchers with talks on transporters involved in diseases from cancer to infectious organisms.

    Early-career researchers and PhD students will have opportunities to communicate their latest research findings with oral and poster presentations. This premier one-day workshop will be held on the 6th of December 2012 at the University of New South Wales, immediately following the 2012 ASB, AuPS and NZPS joint meeting. Discounted registration is available ASB, AuPS or NZPS societies members.

    Registration deadline: 1 November, 2012. Authors submitting abstracts must register. A registration form can be dowloaded here.

    On behalf of the workshop Organizing Committee, we hope to see you there.

  • ASCEPT-APSA Pre conference workshop:

    Immunity in cardiovascular disease: current perspectives.

    Emerging evidence suggests that immunity and inflammation are key regulators of a wide range of cardiovascular diseases, resulting in a dramatic shift in how the pathology of most types of cardiovascular disease is viewed. Due to the nature of immunity, in order for immune mediators to be used to monitor disease or present as potential pharmacological targets an in depth understanding of the underlying contributing processes is essential. We have an exciting list of speakers covering the role of inflammation, and in particular innate and adaptive immunity in cardiovascular disease.
    Novotel Rockford Darling Harbour, 1 December, 2012, 2-6pm. Cost $60.
