Final Conference


As of the end of October 2022, The NCCR TransCure ends its activities that spanned over 12 years of exciting research in the field of membrane transporters and ion channels. Before we cross the finish line, we would like to enjoy a scientific exchange with our colleagues at the national and international level, share the latest results, and encourage new collaborations that can continue in the future. To this end, we are pleased to announce the "NCCR TransCure Final Scientific Conference" on August 17-19, 2022, in the beautiful city of Bern, where our home institution (the University of Bern) is located.

The event welcomes international as well as local speakers. The program encompasses six main sessions covering the physiology, chemistry, and structural biology of membrane transporters and ion channels. A session on gender equality, poster sessions, and social events round up the schedule.

We look forward to stimulating discussions and productive networking.  

Registration and call for abstracts are not yet open. Coming soon!
