Bioinorganic Chemistry

Metals serve in fundamental biological roles that are essential to all life, requiring precise mechanisms for metal acquisition and balance. Nature utilizes metals to achieve chemical conversions that plague synthetic chemists, such as C-H bond activation, hydrogen production and nitrogen fixation. This Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) will explore current knowledge of these natural biological roles and strategies to apply these insights to solve problems in the environment and human health.

The session topics will be as follows:

  • Metals in Pathogenesis,
  • Human Health and Medicine Biogenesis,
  • Chemistry of Enzyme Metallocofactors,
  • Structural and Spectroscopic Characterization of Metallproteins,
  • Artificial Protein and Molecular Design,
  • Biological Electron Transfer and Renewable Energy Applications

The Bioinorganic Chemistry GRS, established in 1996, serves as an extension of the oversubscribed Metals in Biology Gordon Research Conference (GRC) to provide a forum for young scientists to present their work, network, and engage in this vibrant scientific community. The overlapping evening lecture and poster session with the Metals in Biology GRC provides the invaluable opportunity for GRS participants to discuss their research with leaders in the field. This GRS has been consistently oversubscribed; we expect an equal amount of enthusiasm for this year's meeting and thus, recommend applying early. Oral presentations will be selected from submitted abstracts. We encourage scientists in any sub-discipline of biological inorganic chemistry, at career stages similar to that of graduate student or post-doc, to apply.
