‘Microbial protein targets: towards understanding and intervention’ meeting

Microbial protein targets: towards understanding and intervention

14–16 September 2016, Durham, UK

This symposium will bring together leading expertise in protein structure determination, biochemical characterization and chemical biology to explore the most recent advances in the understanding of protein function and inhibition in microbial pathogens – both bacteria and parasites.

An exciting line-up of speakers will present their recent work in the area. Some of the confirmed speakers are:

  • Chris Abell University of Cambridge, UK
  • Gerald Spaeth Institut Pasteur, Paris, France
  • Ed Tate Imperial College London, UK
  • Maria Marco-Martin GSK Tres Contos, Spain

Take advantage of this opportunity to showcase your work alongside leaders in the field and submit an abstract for an oral or poster presentation today. Through generous sponsorship from the RSC Chemical Biology Interface Division and the BSP there are bursaries available for early career researchers to support their participation at this meeting.

The oral abstract deadline has just been extended until 15 July 2016, and poster abstracts are welcome until 5 August 2016. For more information and to register please visit the conference webpage.

Emerging Investigators 2012

Molecular BioSystems Emerging Investigators 2012We are delighted to publish our third themed issue dedicated to the work of new and emerging investigators whose research in chemical biology interfaces with the -omic sciences and systems biology.

There is plenty of exciting research in this issue, including work from Priscilla Yang on exploiting known kinase inhibitors to develop new probes for imaging kinases and Nuno Bandeira on spectral networks algorithms to analyse tandem mass spectroscopy results. Both these articles are free to access for the next four weeks.

For all the contributors to the issue please see our Profile article.

To coincide with this, Molecular BioSystems Deputy Editor Victoria Eyley has just returned from the International Conference on Systems Biology (ICSB) in Toronto, Canada where she presented this year’s Early Career Lectureship to Thijn Brummelkamp (The Netherlands Cancer Institute). Thijn is being recognised as he was one of the first to describe stable RNA interference, which is widely used to study gene function.

*Free access is provided to subscribing institutions or through an RSC Publishing Personal Account. Registration is quick and easy at http://pubs.rsc.org/en/account/register.

It’s your last chance to register for Directing Biosynthesis III

It’s your last chance to register for Directing Biosynthesis III – by the deadline date of Wednesday 22 August.

Natural products continue to underpin the developments of new medicines and agrochemicals. Their biosynthesis and role in the environment are increasingly well understood at ecological, chemical, biochemical, and genetic levels and their discovery and exploitation remain key objectives of academics and companies. Significant opportunities exist for engineering biosynthetic pathways in bacteria, fungi and plants for the directed biosynthesis of new natural products with new and beneficial properties.

We are delighted to announce that a special symposium will take place within the Directing Biosynthesis III programme, recognising the achievements of three RSC award winners of 2011. Each of the winners will give a keynote lecture within the symposium.

  • Professor Jim Naismith, University of St Andrews, UK
    Member of Collaborative Computational Project 4 – STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (CCP4)
    Winners of the Rita and John Cornforth Award 2011
  • Professor Chris Schofield, University of Oxford, UK
    Winner of the Jeremy Knowles Award 2011
  • Dr David R Spring, University of Cambridge, UK
    Winner of the Norman Heatley Award 2011

So join them to be a part of  this highly topical conference featuring contributions from the most active groups in the UK, Europe, the USA and Japan working in the rapidly developing area of directed biosynthesis of new natural products.

Lipids and Membrane Biophysics: Faraday Discussion 161

There’s still just time to submit a poster for Lipids and Membrane Biophysics: Faraday Discussion 161 – by the deadline date 13 July.

This Faraday Discussion will consider recent developments in the study of biomembrane structure, ordering and dynamics, with particular emphasis on the roles of lipids in these phenomena. Registration is quick and simple via our online booking system, so act today and benefit from early bird savings.

Why choose to come to a Faraday Discussion? They have a unique format – all papers are circulated in advance and all discussion contributions are recorded for publication in the abstract book after the event. You can also have your own poster space at the meeting, so submit yours now before the deadline of 13 July.

Come and discuss new experimental and theoretical findings and novel methodologies, as we focus on exploring the relevance of concepts from amphiphile self-assembly and soft matter physics to understanding biomembranes.
