Mohammed Samie, a graduate student in the Xu Lab, presented his research "Regulation of lysosomal exocytosis by a TRP channel in the lysosome" at the International Meeting on Transient Receptor Potential (TRP) Channels and received the Best Poster Award!

The International Workshop on Transient Receptor Potential (TRP) Channels was held September 12-14th, 2012, at the Santiago Grisolía Auditorium of the Príncipe Felipe Science Museum in Valencia, Spain. The workshop included the participation of 17 international speakers, all leaders in the field of TRP channel research. The talks covered all major current aspects of TRP channel research, including their molecular structure and traffic to the plasma membrane, genetics, their physiology and pharmacology, and their role in many pathophysiological processes, like pain, itch, thermoregulation, asthma, diabetes, vascular diseases and mineral homeostasis.

Congratulations to Mohammed!
