Epigenetic and post-translational modification of the diseased heart

Sponsored by the American Physiological Society (APS)

Monday 22 July, 0930 - 1130

The emergence of the four-chambered heart and its underlying substructures was a critical event in vertebrate evolution.  Comparative studies of the vertebrate cardiovascular system provide insights into the mechanisms that drove the evolution of the f

Multidisciplinary approaches to understanding synaptopathies

Mental retardation or intellectual disability is a major source of disability, affecting 2-3% of the population.

Tuesday 23 July, 1415 - 1615

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: New mechanisms of neuronal and glial signalling in the injured spinal cord

Spinal cord research has uncovered a complex repertoire of signalling molecules and ion channels expressed in neurones that regulate excitability and trigger injury-induced maladaptive sensitization.

Tuesday 23 July, 0930 - 1130

Peptide modulation of hedonic food intake

It is clear that mechanisms other than those maintaining homeostatic energy balance drive food intake - we eat for pleasure.

Wednesday 24 July, 0930 - 1130

Physiology of protein palmitoylation

Protein palmitoylation, the most common form of S-acylation, is rapidly emerging as a dynamic and fundamental post-translational control mechanism in the control of protein function.  Very recent advances in both methodological approaches as well as th

Published by Experimental Physiology

Thursday 25 July, 0930 - 1130

Orchestrating signals towards early therapeutically relevant clinical measures of neurodegeneration

Neurodegenerative conditions, such as Alzheimer’s disease, are major disease burdens that are increasing with an ageing population.  This symposium will bring together leading experts to address the latest discoveries in the understanding of the causes
