The intention of this course is to bring together experts in transporter physiology, ion channel biophysics, and structural biology to teach and discuss the structure and function of channels and transporters. Lectures include didactic presentations on the fundamentals of ion channels and primary and secondary transporters, as well as practical information on patch clamp, biochemical assays, protein purification, X-ray crystallography, molecular dynamics, drug interactions with transporters and channels, amperometry, and fluorescence microscopy. Finally, leading experts present channels and transporters in light of human disease.
