1st Workshop on Biomedical Applications of Geochemistry

We are pleased to announce the first Workshop on Biomedical Applications of Geochemistry that will be held at Gargonza, Tuscany (http://www.gargonza.it/index.html) after the Florence Goldschmidt conference from the 30th Aug (evening) to the 1st Sept (afternoon).

Gargonza, Italy, 30th Aug-1st Sept.

You can register for the workshop here.

This workshop will be the opportunity to present new results on the growing field of the use of natural stable isotope fractionation in biomedicine, both for understanding homeostasis in normal and pathological conditions and as potential new biomarkers. This will be also the chance for scientists coming from isotopic mass spectrometry (IRMS and MC-ICPMS) and from biomedicine to meet for setting up an authentic interdisciplinary community devoted to the development of stable isotopes in health sciences.

Committed speakers for this event are Francis Albarède (ENS Lyon), Ariel Anbar (Arizona State University), Anton Eisenhauer (Geomar), Frank Vanhaecke (Ghent University), Thomas Walczyk (National University of Singapore).

For any information about the workshop, please write to Vincent.Balter@ens-lyon.fr.

We are also pleased to announce that the works presented at Gargonza will be invited to submit to Journal of Analytical Atomic Spectrometry and Metallomics for a themed web collection of papers.
