Final Report - ION (A sequential high throughput ion channel screening system for drug discovery in neurological and psychiatric disorders)

Project ID: 513190
Funded under: FP6-SME


This is the final report for the ION project, which received funding under the European Commission's Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). Its main aim was to develop technical systems capable of improving the speed and efficiency of testing chemical compounds which can act on ion channels and that might be used therapeutically.

In the introductory part the report provides some information about how certain drugs that can interact at the biomolecular level with the ion channels can cause diseases. The report then covers the aim of the project, as well as its specific objectives. Detailed information about the contractors involved is stated along with their potential benefits from the project results.

Furthermore, the report covers the work performed and the most important results achieved and afterwards the methodologies and approaches employed, as well as the achievements of the project to state of the art. It also focuses on the impact on the industry and research sector and it concludes with the dissemination activities.
