Euroanalysis 2017

Euroanalysis 2017, will be held from 28th August – 1st September 2017, in StockholmSweden.

Along the lines of the long traditions of Euroanalysis, the meeting will cover all aspects where analytical chemistry plays a role including fundamental and applied sciences. It will offer plenary and keynote presentations on cutting-edge topics by internationally renowned leaders of the field, followed by contributed talks and poster presentations to stimulate interdisciplinary discussions. In addition, a young researchers’ session will be organized to provide opportunities for and encourage Ph.D. students and postdocs to share their findings.

The conference has attracted about 500 participants from more than 30 countries, covering academia, governance and industry. The organisers hope that this will help to strengthen the networks between chemical societies and their members, working in diverse fields.

In addition to the lectures offered in the program, there are also opportunities to visit the exhibition, attend short courses and vendor’s seminars. A number of prominent analytical chemists will also be awarded.

Newton fund workshop on exploring new collaborations – working at the chemistry microbiology interface to develop new antibiotics

The Newton fund workshop on exploring new collaborations – working at the chemistry microbiology interface to develop new antibiotics is being held from 14th – 18th December, 2017, at the Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Chest Diseases in Bengaluru, India.

One of the largest issues that modern medicine is currently facing is how to combat the emergence of bacteria which is resistant to antibiotics. With potentially fatal ramifications worldwide, this is an area of research which is clearly vital. As such, Public Health England (PHE) and the Rajiv Gandhi Institue of Chest Diseases (RGICD) are combing forces for a five day residential workshop.

The workshop is aimed at early stage scientists from India and the UK, with a rough split of 20 participants from each country. Successful applicants will benefit from a hugely valuable mentoring system from luminaries in the fields of medicinal medicine,  clinical microbiology and translational research.

The cost of travel, visas, accommodation and meals will all be covered by the organisers.

Application Deadline: 15th September 2017

TISuMR 1: Symposium On Tissue Culture and Magnetic Resonance

The first TISuMR Symposium on Tissue Culture and Magnetic Resonance will take place from 24th – 27th September, 2017, in Winchester, UK.

The culture of tissue under controlled conditions holds great promise for the future of medicine and the life sciences in general. While the study of cells provides detailed insight into biological processes at the molecular and supra-molecular scale, understanding many disease processes requires a more systemic approach.

Culture of  tissues, either from organ samples or grown entirely in vitro, can provide insight at the organ system level, revealing not only the function of individual cell types, but also their interaction with each other as well as with the extracellular matrix.

Combining advanced microfluidic lab-on-a-chip approaches to tissue culture with non-invasive, in-situ NMR investigation of life processes is the central theme of the TISuMR project. This symposium will bring together clinical experts on liver pathology,  researchers working on microfluidic tissue culture,  and scientists developing novel magnetic resonance techniques, with the following aims:

  • Exchange ideas across discipline boundaries.
  • Discuss opportunities and challenges in the field.
  • Establish the potential of the TISuMR approach for developing liver disease models.
  • Foster mutual understanding between the biomedical and technical aspects of the project.

The technical program will feature a number of leading scientists in the fields of hepatology, microfluidic technology, and magnetic resonance as keynote speakers. In addition, members of the TISuMR team will present their projects and early results.

Electrochem 2017

Electrochem 2017 will be held at the University of Birmingham, UK, from Sunday 10th – Tuesday 12th September, 2017

The Electrochem 2017 annual meeting is organised by the Electrochemistry, and Electroanalytical & Sensors Interest Groups of the RSC, and the Society of Chemistry & Industry (SCI). In 2017, it will also include the 58th Corrosion Science Symposium, the annual meeting of the Institute of Corrosion (Corrosion Science Division).

The Corrosion Science Symposium has been held annually since its launch in 1960 by Prof. L.L. Shreir. It is an ideal opportunity for students and young researchers in corrosion science from across Europe to congregate, discuss their work, share ideas and, above all, enjoy themselves in a stimulating environment. Contributions are invited in all areas of corrosion science and engineering.

Confirmed speakers:

Faraday medal winner: Professor Marc Koper, Leiden University
Fleischmann lecturer: Professor Stephen Fletcher

Registration closes on Friday 25th August.
