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
