The major outcome of SICI will be the generation of innovative knowledge in the ion channel arena that will result in:
i) ground-breaking, transferable technology;
ii) original ion channel therapies for the treatment of human disorders; and,
iii) an integrated educational program on ion channels for graduate and postgraduate students.
Thus, SICI will fulfil the two main goals of an integrated, multidisciplinary project, namely to create innovative, transferable and exploitable knowledge and technology, and to foster integrative training.
