IBDG meeting on Metal Homeostasis

Kirsty McLean receives her IBDG Young Investigator’s Award from Professor Emma Raven of the University of Leicester

From 10-11 September, the Inorganic Biochemistry Discussion Group (IBDG) held a meeting on Metal Homeostasis at the Institute for Cell and Molecular Biosciences at Newcastle University.

Chris Dennison of Newcastle University and Jon McMaster of the University of Nottingham put together a great programme, with Chairs and speakers from the UK, USA and Japan.  These included Metallomics Editorial Board members Tom O’Halloran and Nigel Robinson, as well as Claudia Blindauer of the University of Warwick and Wolfgang Maret of King’s College, London who have both recently published review articles in Metallomics:

Cytosolic metal handling in plants: determinants for zinc specificity in metal transporters and metallothioneins
Claudia A. Blindauer and Ralf Schmid
Metallomics, 2010, 2, 510-529
DOI: 10.1039/C004880A

Cytosolic zinc buffering and muffling: Their role in intracellular zinc homeostasis
Robert A. Colvin, William R. Holmes, Charles P. Fontaine and Wolfgang Maret
Metallomics, 2010, 2, 306-317
DOI: 10.1039/B926662C

The 2010 IBDG Young Investigator’s Award was received by Kirsty McLean of the University of Manchester, who gave an excellent talk on Cytochrome P450 systems and cholesterol metabolism.

Student posters were also presented, and our congratulations go to Fazia Adyani Ahmad Fuad of the University of Edinburgh and Stephen Allen of Newcastle University who won the Metallomics and Dalton Transactions poster prizes, respectively.

Thanks very much to Chris, Jon and all involved in organising the meeting for an interesting and insightful couple of days.

Countdown to the IBDG in Newcastle

It’s now less than a week to the Inorganic Biochemistry Discussion Group, which takes place Friday 10th to Saturday 11th September at Newcastle University.

Metallomics is sponsoring a poster prize, meaning one lucky winner will get a year’s free subscription to the journal.

I’ll be there on behalf of RSC Publishing, so if you are attending please do come pop over to our stand – to get a free copy of the journal, to ask any questions you may have, or just to say hello!

I look forward to meeting you there.
