irculating fluid there is for the heart to contend with. When the process goes wrong, it can result in high blood pressure."

Thus, "the meeting focuses on the key players in the body that regulate the volume of fluid that surround cells and is in blood vessels, which is a major determinant of blood pressure," said symposium co-chair Thomas R. Kleyman, MD, Professor of Medicine, Cell Biology, Physiology, and chief of the Renal-Electrolyte Division at the University of Pittsburgh Department of Pharmacology and Chemical Biology. "Extracellular fluid volume is regulated by the amount of sodium in the body. Too much sodium is a bad thing, but too little is troublesome as well." He added, "The conference examines how all the parts fit together."

Featured Speakers and Topics

Researchers from the US, Japan, Australia, the United Kingdom and other countries will convene to exchange research, theories and ideas about the interaction between aldosterone and ENaC. The list of confirmed invited speakers includes:

Richard Lifton, Yale University School of Medicine
