The Second Annual A. R. Martin Lecture was presented by
Richard W. Aldrich, Ph.D.
Stanford University Medical School
"Conformational changes involved in ion channel gating"
Five graduate students and postdocs presented their work at a mini-symposium. The speakers, pictured with Dr. Aldrich, were (left to right): Dr. Eric Bennett ("Sialic acid alters sodiumn-channel gating"); Gail Perez, ("Acetylcholine receptor phosphorylation and aggregation at the developing neuromuscular junction"); Judy Blain ("Creation of a dominant negative potassium channel subunit"); Adam Koszowski ("Sodium channel distribution in neurons"); Dr. Maria Luisa Ruiz ("Locking single nucelotide-gated channels into different liganded states")
Naturally, there were several lunches, receptions, and parties. The reveler in the center is A.R. Martin.
