Published on 07.08.2018

This year iGluR retreat was held at University of Pittsburgh, July 31 – August 2.

Dr. Sobolevsky presented the poster titled «Mechanisms of channel block in Calcium-Permeable AMPA receptors». This work was published in Neuron on August 16, 2018.

The wonderful organizers of the iGluR retreat, Drs. Jon Johnson (University of Pittsburgh) and Maria Kurnikova (Carnegie Melon University), did a marvelous job orchestrating all of the events.

Remarkable talks/posters with various approaches regarding the iGluR study make the meeting extremely valuable. This year speakers included Dr. Linda Nowak (Cornell University), Dr. Albert Lau (John Hopkins), Dr. Hiro Furukawa (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory), Dr. Pierre Paoletti (ENS) and many others.
