Bioenergetics Christmas Meeting 2016

16 December 2016

Physical and Theoretical Chemistry Laboratory (PTCL), University of Oxford, UK

A Biochemical Society Independent Meeting


The annual Bioenergetics meeting was this year held in at Oxford University, Department of Chemistry. Around 75 people attended the event. The one day meeting allowed young researchers the opportunity to present their work to an expert audience in an informal environment, bringing to the fore the talented and varied research being conducted in the UK.


This year Judy Hirst, FRSC, of the Mitochondrial Biology Unit and University of Cambridge, gave an inspirational opening lecture entitled ‘CryoEM structure of mammalian respiratory complex I, an asymmetric 1 MDa energy-converting enzyme’. Of the student and early post-doctoral speakers we had 11 talks ranging in techniques used (protein film electrochemistry, EPR, atomic force microscopy, use of nanodiscs) and systems studied (mitochondrial disease prevention through early pronuclear transfer, Ferredoxin-NADP+ Reductase and cofactor recycling and organic synthesis, hydrocarbon synthesis in cyanobacteria and copper centre biogenesis in nitrous oxide reductases).


Our prize for best presenter went to Matthew Kerr (DPAG, Oxford) for his talk on mitochondrial lipid regulation in diabetic hearts.
