The Pitt lab attended the Biophysical Society 60th Annual Meeting, Los Angeles, Feb 27-March 2, 2016. Both Gavin Robertson and Benedict Reilly-O’Donnell presented their work. Gavin’s poster was entitled ‘Zinc modulates skeletal ryanodine receptor function resulting in altered sarcoplasmic reticulum calcium release’. Gavin is funded by the BHF. Ben presented a poster entitled ‘Diastolic calcium leak and the role of zinc’. Both Gavin and Ben received a travel award from the Physiological Society. Ben also received additional support from the British Society of Cell Biology. The conference was both helpful and informative and we look forward to presenting more data in the future.
