Ramón Latorre

Centro Interdisciplinario de Neurociencia, Universidad de Valparaíso. Valparaíso, Chile

Ramón Latorre, from the Universidad Valparaiso in Chile, works on ion channels, a type of membrane proteins that are activated by sensing different stimuli and in response open a channel pore. He tries to understand how the protein domains involved in sensing stimuli (sensors) and opening the pore (gates) communicate.

He has been invited by Miguel Ángel Valverde (UPF).
