4th International Congress on Cell Membranes and Oxidative Stress Focus on Calcium Signaling and TRP Channels

The 3rd International Congress on Cell Membranes and Oxidative Stress Focus on: Calcium Signaling and TRP Channels was organized by The Department of Biophysics, Medical Faculty of Suleyman Demirel University between 22-27 June 2010 in Isparta, Turkey. Two hundred fifteen participants attended the congress. The abstracts of the oral presentation were published in Cell Membranes and Free Radical Research. We have since received a considerable amount of positive feedback encouraging us to organize a third congress, with greater international participation. We have decided to proceed with the organization of third congress, which will be the ''4th International Congress on Cell Membranes and Oxidative Stress Focus on: Calcium Signaling and TRP Channels. '' It will be held between 26-29 June 2012. One of the most important aims of this Congress is to bring scientist from all around the world to Turkey, a country which has long served a role as a bridge between two continents. With this purpose we have invited scientists from abroad who are specialists in the topics of the Congress. Also we plan to organize some social activities during or around the congress, such as a Pamukkale tour, which is famous for its travertines, and Eğirdir lake tours. We will also organize three courses namely patch-clamp, cell culture, analyses of antioxidant vitamins in the congress. We look forward to seeing you in Isparta in June 2012.
