2011 Inauguration

Opening-10Inauguration of the Centre for Biomolecular Spectroscopy, King’s College London

Friday 9 September 2011
New Hunt's House, Guy's Campus, London


The Centre for Biomolecular Spectroscopy was inaugurated by Professor Sir Richard Trainor KBE, Principal of King's College London on Friday, 9 September 2011. To mark this occasion, we organised a one-day symposium at New Hunt's House, Guy's Campus which was attended by around 180 scientists from King's College London and around the world.

In his address, the Principal said: ‘We hope that the Centre will act as a focus for groups across the College, highlighting the role that molecular structural studies can play in understanding disease mechanisms and also identifying potential targets for therapeutic intervention.'

The following distinguished scientists gave presentations:

Professor Chris Dobson FRS (University of Cambridge)
Professor Sheena Radford (University of Leeds)
Professor Brian Sykes FRS (University of Alberta)
Professor Tony Watts (University of Oxford)


They were joined by three scientists from King's College London:

Dr. Sasi Conte (Randall Division)
Dr. Alex Drake (Institute of Pharmaceutical Science)
Professor Jim McDonnell (Randall Division)
Dr. Rainer Kuemmerle (Bruker Biospin)
