Dear Friends:


First Transmission

It is our pleasure to inform you that from April 24th to the 27th 2019 the Fifth version of the “ION CHANNELS IN THE VALLEY” Meeting will be held in Montegrande at Valle del Elqui. This event will also mark the Tenth Anniversary of the “Young League of Ion Channel Scientists”, the “secret group” organizing these meetings. The unique landscape of the Valle del Elqui will be the perfect frame to once again talk about the most important things in life: The Ion Channels. We have made a great effort to cover for all accommodations and meals for the most reduced fee. We will work on having a more relaxed schedule this time to save time for some well-deserved extra social activities as well!.

The invitation is open to all scientists at any stage of their careers who want to share their scientific work and views in the Ion Channels field. The high quality research of our national and international guests and the relaxed environment of the Valley will assure that this will be an enjoyable and fruitful opportunity for scientific work and hopefully future collaborations.

Valle del Elqui offers one of the most beautiful places in the IV Región in Chile, a place woldwide famous for their starry night, that can be enjoyed while having the famous local cocktail Pisco Sour(s) to enhance your senses!

We hope to see you all there! Organizing committee:
