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)

Themed collection on Iron in Biology now online

A new themed collection for Metallomics titled “Iron in Biology” is now online for you to read and enjoy.

Guest Edited by Vincenzo Abbate and Robert Hider this collection of papers represents the latest high-impact research in iron in biology and its role in agriculture, health and disease. Covering topics such as iron uptake in microorganisms, plants and parasites, iron deficiency or overload, and iron chelation therapy as well as the role of haem and haemoproteins, iron homeostasis, iron transport and storage proteins, and Fe-S clusters.

We hope you enjoy the collection!

Why not submit your high impact research to Metallomics today.

In memory of Joe Caruso

Gary Hieftje, Joe Caruso, Maria Montes-Bayon

We are honoured to announce the publication of an online web collection with JAAS and Metallomics dedicated to the memory of Joe Caruso.

Joe was a well-known and highly respected leader in the field of analytical chemistry and plasma spectrochemistry in particular – more recently he made great contributions to the fields of elemental speciation and metallomics. Over the years he had been very active for the Royal Society of Chemistry and as well as serving as Chair for JAAS, he was the founding Chair for Metallomics, and became one of the leaders in this emerging area of exciting research.

This very special compilation highlights analytical research being conducted in these areas. We believe that this collection of papers is a fitting memorial to an inspiring mentor and outstanding chemist.

You can access the collection here, or use the link http://rsc.li/2tHpEQl

We thank the guest editors Gary Hieftje and Maria Montes-Bayon, and those who were able to contribute to the collection for their support of this very special memorial.

‘Newton Fund Researcher Links Workshop’ Peptides, proteins, and metals in disease and therapy

‘Newton Fund Researcher Links Workshop’ will be held at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India, from 6th – 8th November, 2017.

The ‘Newton Fund Researcher Link Workshop’ provides opportunities for early career researchers from the UK and internationally to interact, learn from each other and explore opportunities for building long-lasting research collaborations. As part of this programme, early career researchers are now being recruited to participate in the workshop.

The workshop will provide a unique opportunity for sharing research expertise and networking. During the workshops, early career researchers will have the opportunity to present their research in the form of a poster/short oral presentation and discuss this with established researchers from the UK and partner countries. There will be a focus on building up links for future collaborations and participants selected on the basis of their research potential and ability to build longer term links.

The Newton Fund will cover the costs related to the participation to the workshop, including: travel (both international and local), accommodation and meals. Costs for the visa will be covered; however, participants will be responsible for making all the necessary arrangements. Although this cost will not be covered by the Newton Fund participants are encouraged to purchase an adequate travel and medical insurance.

Registration deadline: 31 July 2017

The 6th International Symposium on Metallomics

The 6th International Symposium on Metallomics will be held from 14th – 17th August, 2017, in Vienna, Austria.

Since the term metallomics was coined in 2004, the field embraced many disciplines beyond analytical chemistry, such as biology, biochemistry, bioinorganic chemistry, toxicology and biomedical sciences addressing the role of metals in life sciences. Metallomics 2017 will provide a multidisciplinary platform covering all aspects from method development to the role of metals in life science.

In support of the Symposium, Metallomics will be publishing a themed collection. The collection will feature articles based on oral and poster presentations given at the meeting. If you are attending, we welcome your submissions. 

Key Date

Early bird registration has been extended to 25th May.

Submission for the Metallomics themed collection is 30th September.
