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!

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.

Themed issue on Mammalian Copper Transport and Related Disorders now published

The new themed issue for Metallomics titled “Mammalian Copper Transport and Related Disorders” is now published.

This themed issue, Guest Edited by Professors David Giedroc, Sharon La Fontaine and Richard Burke, marks the retirement of three pioneers in mammalian copper biology, Professors Jim Camakaris, Julian Mercer and Joseph Prohaska.

This issue showcases research on the role of copper in health and disease, the chemistry and structural biology of key copper homeostasis proteins, the development of cutting edge imaging tools and therapies, and the model systems that have helped elucidate the function and regulation of this intriguing and exciting metal in the context of mammalian copper homeostasis.

You can read the issue editorial by the Guest Editors here as well as special editorials by Joseph Prohaska, Julian Mercer and James Camakaris.

Managing Editor, Guy Jones, and Editorial Board chair and Guest Editor of the themed issue, David Giedroc, attended the 10th International Copper Meeting on September 25 – 30, 2016 in Sorrento, Italy and were very pleased to be able to meet with many contributors to the issue as well as Jim, Julian and Joe.

Call for papers: Imaging Metals in Biology

You are invited to contribute to the upcoming Metallomics themed issue titled “Imaging Metals in Biology“.

Guest Edited by Dr Dominic Hare (University of Technology Sydney, Australia), Dr Gawain McColl (Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health, Australia) and Dr Elizabeth New (The University of Sydney, Australia) this upcoming themed issue will showcase the current state-of-play in metal imaging by presenting applications that provide new understanding of how metals regulate normal biochemistry and how this critical balance is lost during disease.

Imaging metals in biological systems has evolved beyond method development to applications which are relevant to fundamental cell biology and making significant contributions to health and disease research. Showcasing these cutting-edge approaches and insights will provide the basis for new studies into the metallome and the effects metals ions have on organisms on other omic-level phenotypes including the proteome and metabolome.

For your article to be considered for this themed issue we must receive your manuscript by October 2nd 2016.
