MGMS Spring Meeting Bio-inorganic Chemistry 31st March - 2nd April 2008, Cardiff, UK http://theory.chem.cf.ac.uk/~grant/conf/ Update: Jan 22, 2008 Registration is open now for the Molecular Graphics and Modelling Society's Spring meeting on Computational Bio-Inorganic Chemistry, which will be held in Cardiff from 31st March to 1st April 2008. Early registration fees will apply for a few more weeks, closing on 8th Feb. Thanks to generous sponsorship by CCG, travel bursaries for students and younger researchers will be available. We have an excellent line-up of speakers, all of whom have recently confirmed their attendance: * Dr. Frank Blaney - Cytochrome P450 2D6 - Recent Structural and Mechanistic Studies. * Prof. Jaroslav Burda - Physicochemical properties and reaction mechanisms of selected anticancer metallodrugs. * Prof. Paolo Carloni - Metal-based drugs/DNA interactions investigated by molecular simulation * Dr. Rob Deeth - Bridging Ligands at Multinuclear Metalloenzyme Active Sites: Novel Force Field Approaches for Dimanganese(II) and Dicopper(II) Systems * Dr. Jeremy Harvey - QM/MM Studies of Metalloprotein Structure and Reactivity * Prof. Fahmi Himo - On the Elusive Mechanism of Nitrile Hydratase * Prof. Nigel Richards - Fe-type nitrile hydratase: How does sulfur oxidation modulate metal chemistry? * Dr. Sam de Visser - Catalytic properties of oxygen activating non-heme enzymes In addition, Dr. Nick Besley will present the MGMS Silver Jubilee Prize lecture, titled: State-Selective Self-Consistent Field Calculations using the Maximum Overlap Method. More details on the meeting, including registration and accomodation details, can be found at URL: http://theory.chem.cf.ac.uk/~grant/conf We look forward to seeing you in Cardiff soon!

From the elucidation of mechanisms in enzymes to the design of new drugs, computational bio-inorganic chemistry has the potential to make crucial contributions to many areas of modern science. To discuss and disseminate recent advances, the Molecular Graphics and Modelling Society and Cardiff University announce an international conference in Computational Bio-Inorganic Chemistry, to be held in Cardiff in Spring of 2008. The conference will run from 31st March to 2nd April 2008, and will incorporate the AGM of the MGMS. The following scientists have accepted invitations to present their work at the conference: * Prof. Jaroslav Burda * Prof. Paolo Carloni * Dr. Rob Deeth * Dr. Jeremy Harvey * Prof. Fahmi Himo * Prof. Nigel Richards * Prof. Sason Shaik * Dr. Sam de Visser in addition, Dr. Nick Besley will present the MGMS Silver Jubilee Prize lecture.
