Wolfgang Liedtke: TRPV4-mediated pain and itch from a translational-medical perspective

March 20, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Speaker: Wolfgang Liedtke, M.D. Ph.D.

Description: TRPV4 ion channels, the first mammalian “osmo-mechano”-TRP, have been around for almost 2 decades. They are clearly involved in pain signaling, more recent evidence also suggesting a role in itch. Pathophysiological concepts will be illustrated as well as therapeutic approaches.
