Module One: Ion Channels: Basic Principles and Their Application to Assay Design
Presented by: Claire Townsend, Ph.D., GlaxoSmithKline


This module will introduce the fundamental properties of ion channels: their structure, biophysical characteristics, and how ion channel function may be altered by natural products and drugs. Several examples illustrating how this knowledge can be applied to the design of ion channel assays will be presented.
