Department of Chemistry Seminar: 'Self-assembly of Amphiphilic Peptides and Their Interaction with Membranes'

11am in CG60 on Thursday 17 April 2014

Dr Robert Vacha, Masaryk University, Brno, Czech Republic.

Information: Robert is a young computational chemist/physicist using coarse-grained simulations to investigate problems in soft matter and biophysics. He has done important work in the field of ions at aqueous surfaces with Pawel Jungwirth and in biophysical modelling with Daan Frenkel. Robert will be in the UK for an IoP workshop in Cambridge and will be taking the opportunity to come up to Durham for a day.

 


Workshop (DCSM and BSI): Stress and Signalling in the Vascular Endothelium

17 April 2014, MC106 (Materials Chemistry Building).

Speakers include: Professor John McCarron (Strathcylde), Professor Gerald Fuller (Stanford).

This meeting will bring together scientists who approach the investigation of stress and signaling by vascular endothelial cells from different perspectives. The discussion will involve current research into the biological mechanisms involved, novel imaging technologies that are being applied in situ and the modelling of the shear stress gradients involved.

For more information please contact Professor John Girkin or Professor Tom McLeish at the email addresses: j.m.girkin@durham.ac.uk, pvc.research@durham.ac.uk

Model Systems to Understand Microbiota-host Interactions

23-24 April, Durham Business School

This focused workshop will bring 10-20 of the leading researchers in the field of microbiota-host interactions together for two days of discussion and collaboration. A particular emphasis will be how these models can help those working with the human microbiota and the future directions.

Speakers include: Liping Zhao (Shanghai Jiao Tong University), Cathy Clarke (University of California Los Angeles), François Leulier (Lyon), Tim Barraclough (Imperial College).
