NMR in Biomedical Research: from Metabolomics to Structural Biology

Guy’s Campus, London

4 Sep main-nmr-symposium

The NMR Facility here at King’s is hosting a one-day symposium to celebrate the refurbishment of their suite NMR spectrometers. The day will end with Ed Bryne (President & Principal, King’s College London) unveiling a special art piece/plaque to mark the occasion.

This free event features international speakers covering topics of NMR-based research from metabolomics to structural biology as well as highlighting the work of King’s PhD students and post-docs.

Keynote speakers will include:

  • Professor Lucia Banci, CERM, University of Florence, Italy. 'The contribution of NMR to the description of cellular processes'
  • Dr Martin Blackledge, Institut de Biologie Structurale, Grenoble, France. 'NMR studies of large-scale protein conformational dynamics: From fundamental biophysics to functional biology'
  • Professor Art Edison, University of Georgia, USA. 'New methods for in vivo metabolomics'
  • Professor Mike Shattock, King's College London, UK. 'The Salt of the Earth: NMR studies of Na elevation and metabolic dysfunction in heart failure'

Shorter presentations will highlight some of the research being done at King's. These will include:

  • Dr Alessandro Sicorello, Department of Basic and Clinical Neuroscience (IoPPN). 'The structural properties in the solution of the intrinsically mixed folded protein ataxin-3'
  • Miss Ingebjørg Hungnes, School of Biomedical Engineering & Imaging Sciences. 'NMR Analysis of a Rhenium Bioconjugate: Modelling Novel Radioactive Medical Imaging Agents’

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

Registration is free but essential for security and catering purposes.
