2013 Suddath Symposium

The Inorganic Face of Life: From Metalloproteins to Cells and Whole Organisms

Traditionally thought of as two separate disciplines with little common ground, inorganic chemistry and biology form a complex interwoven fabric that plays a central role in our quest to understand life processes at the molecular level. The 2013 Suddath Symposium is devoted to illuminate the rich tapestry at the intersection of these two disciplines. The talks cover a broad and diverse set of topics, ranging from the movement of electrons in redox processes to exploring the function of metalloenzymes, from unraveling the role of metal ions in the evolution of life to chasing their trafficking pathways and regulation in developing organisms and disease, and from tracing gasotransmitters in cell signaling to resolving complex gene regulatory processes.

The Suddath Symposium is held annually to celebrate the life and contribution of F.L. "Bud" Suddath by discussing the latest developments in the fields of bioengineering and bioscience.

The speakers include leading researchers from across the world. This successful symposium has been taking place for 21 years!  Each year the symposium topic changes.

Registration required, deadline Monday, February 18th.
