Topics of the Symposium :

 Over the past decade transient receptor potential (TRP) cation channels gained broad recognition as versatile cellular sensors and effectors fulfilling salient roles in development, metabolism, and body homeostasis. This symposium aims to open a TRP window into endocrinology, and we have invited an international faculty of leading scientists that will present their most recent results on the roles of TRP channels in hormone-secreting cells, in hormone-controlled mineral and glucose homeostasis, in neurohumoral control of cardiovascular function and reproduction and in neural networks which control reproductive behavior and energy metabolism.

Practical information :


The symposium starts on Wednesday  October 4th at 3 pm

Two buses will pick up the participants at
Strasbourg railroad station the first one leaving
at 12:30 and the second one at 13:30. The first
bus leaving at 12:30 will stop at Strasbourg
airport before reaching MSO

A snack will be served at Mont Ste Odile at 2 pm
before the beginning of the conferences.

Departure is scheduled on Saturday October 7th. The bus will leave Mont Ste Odile at 2 pm after lunch and
will arrive at the airport at 2:45 pm and at the railroad station at 3:30 pm


If you cannot make the bus, a taxi from Strasbourg costs around 90 euros. Alternatively, there are trains from Strasbourg to Obernai (TER line Strasbourg-Molsheim-Obernai-Barr-Sélestat) every 30 min starting at 15h40.

Not all trains stop at the airport, but you can manage to go to Molsheim and

board the next train to Obernai.

A list of taxis in Obernai is here
