Channelopathy 2020
Québec City, 25-27 June, 2020

Welcome to Channelopathy 2020!

On behalf of the Steering Committee, we thank you for visiting this website. Channelopathy 2020 plans to continue a tradition of international scientific meetings dedicated to the topic of channelopathy that began more than 20 years ago with the SkyTop conference when there were only a few recognized ion channel diseases. Today, more than 30 years after the first channelopathy discovery – the identification of CFTR mutations as the cause of cystic fibrosis – it is valuable to reflect on the extraordinary sequence of discoveries relevant to the structure, function, and molecular genetics for dozens of important ion channel molecules and their regulatory proteins. During these past 3 decades, the term ‘channelopathy’ has become woven into the lexicon of biomedical research and clinical medicine.

The organization of Channelopathy 2020 will place emphasis on broad scientific themes shared across channel types and diseases.
