Metals in Biology - Life is Inorganic Too!

Traditionally biology and its interface with chemistry are regarded as being 'organic' in nature, i.e. composed predominantly of carbon-containing molecules. However, this isn't strictly true and metals and inorganic ions are crucial to most biological process, and indeed the existence of life itself.

This lecture will explore the roles and functions of metals in biology, how they are acquired by plants and animals and how they might be used to improve medicines of the future.

When: Tuesday, 16th Feb 2016; 6-8pm
