Scientific Meetings and Training Events

The Biochemical Society provides an extensive range of events, including scientific conferences, training events, outreach activities, medal lectures, and policy and education events.  This programme provides an excellent opportunity to magnify your research by submitting an abstract for an oral communication or poster presentation, and sharing your work with the wider molecular biosciences community.

Determination of Binding Affinities and Molecular Mechanisms

2 May 2014

Charles Darwin House, London, UK

A Biochemical Society Training Day


Biochemical Society Training Days are designed to address a specific scientific training need within the bioscience community, aimed at PhD level and beyond. These events aim to create a platform for participants to gain hands-on experience, and an opportunity to ask questions and discuss problems with experts in the field.


Scientific background


This Training Day will focus on the analysis of biochemical equilibrium binding data, with the goal to determine the underlying molecular mechanism and the corresponding binding constants.  All mathematical models are automatically derived by the free software package DynaFit.  Participants will solve practical problems from published literature or generated in their own laboratories.


Attendance is by application only, and places are limited.


Application deadline: Application has now closed.

If you wish to apply to attend this Training Day, please contact the Conference Office.
