This year’s meeting will take place in partnership with Victoria University’s Centre for Biodiscovery (CfB). It will also be back-to-back with the NZ branch meeting of the Australasian Society for Immunology (conference details here).
The conference will commence at 4.30pm on 2nd July, with a welcome mixer (free to delegates) followed by a public lecture by A/Prof Siouxsie Wiles on the crisis of antimicrobial resistance (and what we can do about it). Confirmed speakers for the conference include:
A/Prof Julia Horsfield (University of Otago; NZSBMB Plenary) – The influence of chromatin structure on gene expression in development and cancer.
A/Prof Siouxsie Wiles (University of Auckland; CfB Plenary) – Biodiscovery of new antibiotics.
Dr Andrew Munkacsi (Victoria University of Wellington) – Mātauranga-guided biodiscovery.
Dr Chelsea Vickers (University of Victoria, Canada) – Discovery and reconstruction of a metabolic pathway.
In addition to the conference sessions, there will be a poster session and practical workshops on flow cytometry, structural biology and computational biochemistry. With prizes for the best student speakers and the best posters (student and postdoc/technician), and the conference dinner on 3rd July…what’s not to love?!
Conference registration is now open. The registration fee is only $100 for members of NZSBMB or CfB, discounted to $70 for postdocs and technicians…and FREE for our student members!
