On Monday 7th September academics from around the UK met to discuss “Teaching the physical aspects of the molecular biosciences”. It was a day intended to stimulate general discussion whilst also allowing us to occasionally focus on the nitty gritty.
September 10-11, 2015. This meeting is the sixth of a series of focussed workshops in the EPSRC NetworkPlus ‘Understanding the Physics of Life’. Sheffield, UK.
Congratulations to Fran Ashcroft, who was awarded a DBE this June 'for services to Medical Science and the Public Understanding of Science'.
February 27 - March 2 2016. American Biophysical Society’s 60th Annual Meeting. Los Angeles, California.
We note that RJP 'Bob' Williams died on the 21st of March 2015. Bob Williams was a pioneer of the field of Bioinorganic Chemistry, especially concerned with the role of metal ions as biological messengers, in electrolyte control and in enzyme catalysis, and contributed substantially to our understanding of the evolution of life.
