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)
