Covington, KY/May 11, 2009 - The 2009 International Symposium on Metallomics will be held June 7-10 at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center.
Metallomics is the study of metals and metal species, and their interactions, transformations, and functions in biological systems. While traditional approaches have focused on the role and interactions of a single (or few) metals in a protein or enzyme system, metallomics purports to study global, multielement interactions and relationships. As such, the metallomics challenges for chemical and biochemical characterization are significant.
The meeting will include invited presentations by world leaders in the areas of systems biology, bioinorganic chemistry, instrument development, metallomics methods and approaches, environmental and biomedical sciences, as well as contributed papers covering the entirety of metallomics.
In addition to the scientific program, ISM '09 will include participation from the leading suppliers of scientific instrumentation and a social program that will ensure opportunities to interface with colleagues from around the world.
