Video, Oct 07 2020

Biochemistry Focus Webinar Series

70 minutes

This webinar, run during Biology Week, was linked to the special issue of Emerging Topics in Life Science journal, with a sub-theme of ‘Celebrating 10 years of the RSB: what have the biosciences done for us?’, which was published jointly between the Biochemical Society, Portland Press and Royal Society of Biology.

In this webinar, we welcomed three speakers who kindly contributed to this special issue, providing a series of talks showcasing what the biosciences have done for us. This included presentations on immunological aspects of prion diseases and deciphering the complexity of polymicrobial biofilms, especially in the context of serious chronic infections and antimicrobial effectiveness.

Invited speakers:

  • Dr Karl Frontzek, Consultant Neuropathologist and Senior Researcher at the Institute of Neuropathology, University of Zurich, Switzerland
  • Dr Kim Hardie, Associate Professor in the School of Life Sciences at the University of Nottingham
  • Dr Oliver Elemento, Director of the Englander Institute for Precision Medicine, USA

This webinar was chaired by Professor Patricia Kuwabara, University of Bristol and Trustee of the Royal Society of Biology.
