The study of helicases and translocases is a rapidly growing field, fuelled by the fact that helicase defects are associated with inherited human diseases including neurological disorders, cancer, and aging processes. Pathogens encode helicases, making these enzymes targets for new anti-viral or anti-bacterial therapies. New discoveries linking helicases to disease states are being discovered regularly, due to the fact that helicases and translocases participate in a wide variety of cellular functions.

Unique to the Biochemical Society, Harden Conferences are residential research conferences covering a specialist topic.
The conferences bring together scientists from various backgrounds with a common interest in - but varying approaches to - the topic of the conference.
To maintain a suitably high level of discussion and presentation at the conference, it is desirable that participants be experienced in the field covered; most of the participants will be expected to have postdoctoral or equivalent experience, although Ph.D. students will also be welcome.
The planned scientific sessions feature speakers invited by the Organizers and, in addition, time is left for extensive discussion and for short contributions, including posters, by other conference participants.
All participants must be resident for the duration of the conference.Scientists wishing to participate are asked to apply online.
Bursaries and free places
A limited number of bursaries to cover the cost of registration are available to assist younger members of the Biochemical Society to attend the conferences.
Preference will be given to senior graduate students (or those who gained their Ph.D. in the last 5 years) and restricted to members of the Biochemical Society.
Applications for these places should be sent to the Biochemical Society from the applicant's supervisor and should be accompanied by an independent reference.
