Biological Inorganic Chemistry

19—23 July 2003, Queensland, Australia

The conference program for the 11th International Conference on Biological Inorganic Chemistry promises to be outstanding and will reflect the latest developments in biological inorganic chemistry, supported by an exceptional line up of plenary speakers.

Metalloproteins constitute 50% of all known proteins, and the post-genomic revolution allows new approaches to gene discovery and to fundamental metallo-biology. The field is fundamentally multidisciplinary, bringing together common genetic, biochemical and biophysical themes applied to bacteria, plants, animals, and humans.

The Society of Biological Inorganic Chemistry is the world’s leading body for promoting this interdisciplinary field. Its members are scientific professionals from hospitals, research institutes, and universities engaged in research, development, and commercial activities. Fundamental knowledge has led to the development of bio-inspired photonic, electronic, and analytical techniques. For example, the glucose oxidase electrode developed for diabetics is the most frequently used analytical device in the world. The development of the famous platinum anticancer drug cis-Platin has also led to the search for new inorganic drugs for the treatment of cancer and other diseases. Radio-pharmaceuticals and other imaging agents, together with bio-sensors in general, constitute another burgeoning area of development.

The conference will provide attendees with the opportunity to showcase their ideas, developments, research, and products and to speak with each of the delegates at the conference. This conference has grown exponentially since its inception 20 years ago. There were 1300 delegates who attended the Tenth Conference in 2001 in Florence, Italy.
