Bioenergetics Christmas Meeting 2015

18 December 2015

Imperial College London, UK

A Biochemical Society Independent Meeting


The organizers invite you to the 2015 Christmas Bioenergetics Meeting at Imperial College on Friday the 18th of December.

To start this year's meeting there is an excellent speaker in Prof. Les Dutton FRS, Eldridge Reeves Johnson Professor of Biochemistry and Biophysics at the University of Pennsylvania. Les is a world leader on understanding the process of biological electron transfer, and has also designed a highly successful set of synthetic "maquette" proteins to demonstrate these processes. 

The meeting will begin with Les's talk at 11.30 am and, following lunch, there will be approximately ten 15-minute presentations from PhD students and postdocs.

The main purpose of this meeting is to bring together the bioenergetics community in a fairly informal 1 day event, and to give early career researchers - particularly PhD students - a forum for presenting their work in front of an informed audience. As usual, there is no registration fee for this meeting, and since the Biochemical Society are funding this event as an Independent meeting, students who are members of the Biochemical Society are eligible for travel bursaries up to £100 (see below) to attend. Students who wish to apply for these bursaries are recommended to do so as soon as possible.

If you and your research group are interested in attending the meeting, please email with a list of likely attendees so the organizers can get an idea about numbers.

If a member of your group is interested in presenting their work at the meeting, please also email their name and a proposed title for their talk and the organizers will endeavour to include them in the afternoon program. The organizers will confirm whether proposed talks have been accepted well ahead of the meeting. The program will be finalised in early December, and another email will be sent with this and more details about visiting Imperial College.


Student Bursaries are available for this meeting.
