Module Three: Ion Channel Physiology and Drug Discovery
Presented by: Peter Miu, Ph. D., M. Sc., B. Sc. (Hon), Amgen

This course will focus on the history of ion channels in research and introduce various roles of ion channels in both excitable and non-excitable cells.  Examples of target and lead validation will be discussed to give an overall understanding of the strategy and methods now practiced in a drug discovery environment.

Meet Our Presenter 

Dr. Peter Miu spent 14 plus years as a research scientist for pharmaceutical companies in both Canada and US, specializing in biophysical and pharmacological characterization of ion channels and membrane transporters using conventional and automated patch-clamp platforms.
