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.

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)

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.

Metals in Biology

The 2017 Metals in Biology Conference is to be held between 22 – 27 January, in Ventura, California

“The MIB-GRC brings together scientists from diverse backgrounds to foster new collaborations that take advantage of complementary skills. Lectures in the 2017 MIB-GRC cover recent advances in our understanding of the roles of metalloproteins and metal/nucleic acid complexes in cellular signaling, metal ion regulation, and their effects on human health; the evolving biological chemistry of metals from the earth’s deep past to the current environment, and metal-centered catalysis by a variety of metalloenzymes, including those crucial in the grand global cycles of hydrogen, nitrogen, and oxygen.”

If you are coming to the conference, then why not come and chat to Metallomics Executive Editor Philippa Hughes.

Philippa Ross, Executive Editor, Metallomics
