KITP Minisymposium on
The Role of Intercellular Calcium Signaling in Healthy and Diseased Tissues
November 13-14, 2003
Coordinator: P. Jung
Funding: NSF, NIH, Burroughs Wellcome Fund

Calcium signaling plays an important role in the regulation of numerous cellular functions and the coordination of cellular functions in cell-layers. While the first mini-symposium was focused mainly on intracellular calcium signaling and the mathematical modeling, this minisymposium is mainly concerned with intercellular calcium in healthy and diseased tissues. Topics include novel signaling mechanisms, including the role of extracellular messengers and integrins, role of calcium signaling for synaptic transmission, and calcium signaling in cancer tissue.
