Resonant Ultrasound Spectroscopy for Characterisation of Phase Transitions in Functional Ceramics
3–4pm 26 August 2014
The cell membrane acts as a physical barrier that separates the biological machinery of life from a potentially hostile external environment. The cell membrane itself is composed...
2–3pm 26 August 2014
My research to date has mostly been related to catalysis, but has also had another common theme:  I’m interested in learning how a chemical system works, and then...
11am–12pm 26 August 2014
Fluorescence is a powerful technique that could provide spatiotemporal information with exquisite sensitivity. The lifetime of fluorescence emission is in the nanosecond range,...
10–11am 26 August 2014
Understanding the mechanistic details involved in synthesis at different length scales is fundamental to improving these processes and obtaining control over the structure of the...
1–2pm 21 August 2014
Novel IR Spectroscopies to study biological membranes and membrane proteins
11am–12pm 13 August 2014
One of the ultimate goals for the synthetic chemistry is the enantioselective synthesis by a zero-emission process. In this presentation, we disclose how we develop the first...
2.30–4pm 8 August 2014
Membranes, micelles and motors – maintaining the momentum Carol V. Robinson, University of Oxford What can we learn from the study of membrane protein complexes in the gas...
1–2pm 31 July 2014
Different bacteria respond to their environments through alteration of cell morphology and through formation of communities of bacteria across surfaces, known as called biofilms....
1–2pm 3 July 2014
Fragment-based screening and rational design approaches towards discovering new antibiotics with novel mechanisms of action
2–3pm 20 June 2014
It has generally been though impossible to obtain hydrogen atom positions from X-ray crystallography owing to the fact that they only have one electron and thus hardly scatter X...
4–5pm 26 May 2014
The bottom-up design of protein-based signaling networks is a key goal of synthetic biology – yet, it remains elusive due to our inability to tailor-make signal transducers...
1–2pm 1 May 2014
Theory and Computation Provide Insights and Discovery on Chemical Reactions of Complex Molecular Systems
1–2pm 17 April 2014
The stabilization and "transition metal-like" reactivity of low oxidation state/low coordination group 14 metal complexes
1–2pm 15 April 2014
Bacterial cytochromes P450 as catalysts: investigations of their mechanism of electron transfer and action
1–2pm 27 March 2014
TIR (Toll/interleukin-1 receptor, resistance protein) domains feature in diverse proteins with functions in the immune system, such as animal TLRs (Toll-like receptors), plant...
4–5pm 17 March 2014
Our understanding of materials performance is based on experimental data.  We use it to generate predictive models that allow us to develop improved materials and sometimes...
