Basic/Clinical Science Session

Advances in Renal Ion Channel Physiology

November 09, 2019 | 02:00 PM - 04:00 PM

Location: 146 C, Walter E. Washington Convention Center

Session Description

Recent studies have highlighted novel roles for renal ion channels to influence physiology and pathophysiology. This session highlights a few of these recent advances, including roles for renal ion channels in potassium, magnesium, and calcium handling. This session also highlights novel insights into the functions of renal ion channels.

Learning Objective(s)

  • Discuss the interactions between renal ion channels and renal function
  • Describe the role of polycystin 2 (PC2) in calcium signaling
