Understanding, measuring and modelling fluid dynamics at the nanoscale is currently a central problem to science and technology. Problems as diverse as; the motion of water molecules in confined biological environments, proteins folding and function, controlled friction and lubrication, heat transfer at interfaces and nanofluidics power generators, all hinge on the particular behaviour of liquids at the nanoscale. Yet relatively little is known about the topic: experimental investigations on that scale are very challenging while computer simulations tend to fall between molecular dynamics and continuum modelling. This workshop aims to build awareness and ties between the multitude of disciplines working on the problems related to fluid dynamics at the nanoscale.
The meeting will take place over 2 days with speakers invited from across the UK. Speakers will talk for 45 minutes and talks should appeal to the broad audience.
Confirmed speakers include: Mark Leake (University of York), Joshua Edel (UC London), Sergi Garcia-Manyes (KC London), Ulrich Keyser (Cambridge University), Alberto Striolo (UC London), Stuart Clarke (Cambridge University), Kislon Voitchovsky (Durham University), Susan Perkin (Oxford University), Mike Allen (Warwick University), Tom McLeish (Durham University), Buddo Chakrabarati (Durham University), Moein Moghimi (Durham University).

This symposium will bring together leading expertise in protein structure determination, biochemical characterization and chemical biology to explore the most recent advances in the understanding of protein function and inhibition in microbial pathogens – both bacteria and parasites.
- Microbial protein structure determination and analyses
- Biochemical analyses of microbial protein functionality
- Chemical tools for probing microbial protein function
- Structure, function and rational drug discovery
