Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to welcome you to the IGJC 2024, which will be held in the dynamic and cosmopolitan Arlington, Virginia adjacent to Washington, D.C., USA. Bringing together the diverse international community of scientists investigating connexin, innexin, and pannexin biology, the biannual IGJC has provided a forum to push our research forward for over 40 years. From fundamental biophysics to human health and disease, our program encompasses the full breadth of the research spectrum and ensuring valuable information sharing while fostering attendee networking and collaboration. We highlight and acknowledge our trainees and early-career group leaders while providing professional development programing to facilitate career progression for all.

In addition to sharing novel research findings with the field and building relationships, we incorporate a variety of social events to enjoy each other's company and take in the stunning DC skyline. Additionally, you will have opportunity to explore the capitol of the United States, immerse in its history, and enjoy the plethora of Smithsonian Museums encompassing impactful art, culture, and technology that speaks to us all as an international community. The region is famed for its cuisine, enchanting neighborhoods, and nearby historical highlights to visit.

We thank you in advance for your participation and look forward to seeing you in Arlington for an invigorating experience discussing connexin, innexin, and pannexin research.
