The IBUB researcher Antonio Felipe receives SECF’s award

The Spanish Society for Physiological Sciences (SECF) has honoured Antonio Felipe Campo, professor from the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of the University of Barcelona (UB) and the Institute for Research in Biomedicine of UB (IBUB) –basde in the PCB– for the science dissemination work he has carried out. Felipe received the prize on SECF's general assembly, which took place on 26 September, at the auditorium of the Granada Science Park.

SECF has honoured Antonio Felipe for promoting and creating two parallel and complementary lecture series which have been organised since 2010. The first one, the Hot Topic Seminars, is an initiative adressed to the general public, particularly to students —from upper secondary students to people studying a master’s degree—, in order to bring them closer to research on physiology, specifically on ionic channels.

The activity gathers three experts who deal with different hot issues. From their onset, the Hot Topic Seminars have analysed questions such as cardiac ion channelopathies (2011), neuropathic pain (2012), ion channels in cancer (2013), and ion channels in central nervous system disorders (2014).

The other lecture series is addressed to a specialized audience. It takes place every two years and is entitled Ion Channels in Health and Disease. It is structured in two blocks of three lectures each. Prestigious experts in the field of ion channels and channelopathies participate in them. The third edition takes place on 3 October. Juan Lerma (Neurosciences Institute, Alicante), Frances Ashcroft (University of Oxford, United Kingdom), Walter Stühmer (Max Planck Institute for Experimental Medicine, Germany) and György Panyi (University of Debrecen, Hungary) are some the experts who participate in the third edition.
