Call for Papers:
Voltage-Gated Sodium Channels
You are invited to submit papers on Voltage-Gated Sodium Channels to be published throughout the year and highlighted in a special issue. This special issue is initiated in the context of the Worldwide Sodium Channel Conference in Grindelwald, Switzerland, January 31 to February 2, 2024.
Guest editors are Angelika Lampert of the RWTH Aachen University, Germany, and Hugues Abriel of the University of Bern, Switzerland. They are assisted in handling the submitted manuscript reviews by JGP Editor-in-Chief David Eisner of Manchester University and JGP Associate Editor Jeanne Nerbonne of Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.
JGP welcomes submissions that focus on increasing our understanding of the role of voltage-gated sodium channels in the broad physiological and pathophysiological context. Topics of interest include but are not limited to, atomistic modelling, biophysics of gating, structural and biochemical investigations, computer simulations, cellular excitability, subcellular expression and regulation, sodium channels in diseases (cardiac, muscle, pain, epilepsy and any other) and mechanistic investigations of sodium channelopathies using new model systems, such as stem cell-derived cells. We also welcome studies involving patients suffering from sodium channel-related diseases.
Submissions of Research Articles, Communications, Hypotheses, or Methods and Approaches are specifically invited. The deadline for submission for inclusion in the special issue is August 31, 2024. Authors can now publish in JGP free of charge or pay a reduced fee to make their articles immediately Open Access—learn more about our No Fee-Low Fee policy.
