Peter Faller: New Metallomics Advisory Board Member

We are delighted to announce that Peter Faller has recently joined the Metallomics Advisory Board! Peter is a Professor in Chemistry and group leader at the Institut de Chimie in Strasbourg. His research is focussed on the self-assembly of amyloidogenic peptides and their interaction with metal ions, other (metallo)-proteins and small molecules (aggregation inhibitors/fluorophores).

 

Read some of Peter’s Metallomics articles below:

 

Metal-catalyzed oxidation of Aβ and the resulting reorganization of Cu binding sites promote ROS production

Metallomics, 2016, 8, 1081-1089

EuroBIC 14

This August saw the occasion of the 14th European Biological Inorganic Chemistry Conference (EuroBIC), held at the University of Birmingham in the UK. With an excellent line up of internationally renowned plenary and keynote speakers the event was a huge success, attracting around 400 attendees.

The Royal Society of Chemistry was pleased to support the event, offering poster prizes of books and book vouchers. The winners of RSC vouchers were:

  • Raul Berrocal-Martin (University of Glasgow) – Dalton Transactions Poster Prize
  • Wilma Neumann (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) – Metallomics Poster Prize
  • Ying Zhou (University of Hong Kong) – ChemComm Poster Prize
  • Leon Jenner (University of East Anglia) – Chemical Science Poster Prize

The following presenters also won the RSC Highly Commended Poster Awards:

  • Gloria Vigueras Bautista (University of Murcia)
  • Nicolai Burzlaff (Friedrich-Alexander University)
  • Samya Banerjee (University of Warwick)
  • Riccardo Bonsignore (Cardiff University)
  • Philip Ash (University of Oxford)

Dalton Transactions associate editor Nils Metzler-Nolte (Ruhr-Universität Bochum) and Chemical Science assistant editor William King were on hand to award the prizes.

Gilles Gasser: New Metallomics Editorial Board Member

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Gilles Gasser to the Metallomics Editorial Board.

Gilles Gasser was born, raised and educated in Switzerland. After a PhD thesis in supramolecular chemistry with Prof. Helen Stoeckli-Evans (University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland), Gilles performed two post-docs, first with the late Prof. Leone Spiccia (Monash University, Australia) in bioinorganic chemistry and then as an Alexander von Humboldt fellow with Prof. Nils Metzler Nolte (Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany) in bioorganometallic chemistry. Gilles then started his independent scientific career at the University of Zurich in 2010 first as a Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) Ambizione Fellow and then as a SNSF Assistant Professor in 2011. In 2016, Gilles moved to Chimie ParisTech, University (France), thanks among other to a PSL Chair of Excellence Program Grant. Gilles was the recipient of several fellowships and awards including the Alfred Werner Award from the Swiss Chemical Society, an ERC Consolidator Grant, the Thieme Chemistry Journal Award, the Jucker Award for his contribution to cancer research and recently the EuroBIC medal for his work on bioinorganic chemistry. Gilles’s research group aims at utilizing the specific physico-chemical properties of metal complexes in different areas of medicinal chemistry.

 

We welcome the knowledge and expertise Gilles will bring to the journal and we very much look forward to working with him. Welcome to the Metallomics team!

Are you going to be at the Metals in Medicine GRC?

Will you be at the Metals in Medicine GRC, June 24-29, Andover, NH, USA?

Metals in Medicine is a cross-cutting field that incorporates scientific advances in inorganic chemistry, cell and molecular biology, advanced spectroscopy and biophysics, nuclear medicine, medicinal chemistry, clinical medicine, and other disciplines in ways that leverage knowledge of metals to prevent, diagnose, and treat human disease. Recent discoveries in the field have advanced our collective understanding of the role of metals in medicine, bioinorganic chemistry, and imaging technologies, which in turn enhances the potential for the development of metal-based drugs and drugs that act on metallobiological targets.

Metallomics will be co-sponsoring three poster prizes, so best of luck!

Rebecca Brodie Rebecca Brodie, Deputy Editor, Metallomics, will be attending.

Please feel free to get in touch with me to arrange a meeting: metallomics-rsc@rsc.org

I look forward to meeting you in Andover!

London Metallomics Consortium Inaugural Meeting

London Metallomics Consortium Inaugural Meeting

29th June 2018, 2-5 pm, Franklin Wilkins Bldg, Lecture Theatre B5

Trace metals can be essential to health or environmental hazards. In a major new initiative, academics from across King’s Faculty of Life Sciences & Medicine have teamed up to promote research into the role of trace metals in health and disease, by forming the London Metallomics Consortium with colleagues from all the London universities. Following success in obtaining funding from the Wellcome Trust and King’s to set up the London Metallomics Facility, the Consortium invites you to its inaugural symposium.

Speakers:
John Viles, QMU (Amyloid β assembly and metal ions in Alzheimer’s disease)
Phil Blower, KCL (PET metallomics: in vivo imaging of trace metal trafficking with radioisotopes)
Guy Rutter, IC (Zinc in pancreatic islet biology and diabetes)
Po-Wah So, KCL (Iron in the ageing brain)
Ian Mudway, KCL (Non-occupational exposures to inhaled metals: Do they matter?)
Maciej Garbowski, UCL (Non-transferrin bound iron – methodological challenges and future perspectives)
Paul Sharp, KCL (Assessing mineral bioavailability from plant-based foods)
