Inaugural Meeting of the Scottish Membrane Transport Group
Discovery Quay, Dundee, Friday 28th April 1995
Second Notice and Call for Abstracts
The meeting will take the form of a one day symposium with a total of 4
sessions. Three of these will be headed by a keynote lecturer whose
presentation will be followed by a number of contributed talks by younger
Research Workers from within Scotland. Based on the abstracts that they
submit, a number of participants will therefore be invited to present a 20
minute oral presentation of their work. An important aspect of the meeting
is to encourage discussion in a friendly and informal atmosphere, and so
there will also be an extended poster session. The day will be rounded off
by a group dinner. The entire meeting will take place at the Discovery
Quay conference centre and accomodation will be available at the Discovery
Quay Travel Lodge Motel. This is a few yards from the meeting venue and so
participants will be able to enjoy the dinner and travel home at their
leisure on Saturday morning.
The keynote speakers will be:
Professor Brian Harvey
Wellcome Cell Physiology Unit, University College Cork, Ireland.
Nongenomic steroid effects on Na+/H+ exchange and K+ channels in human colon.
Professor JeanPaul Blondeau
Directeur de Recherche, INSERM Unit de Reserches sur La GlandeThyroide et
