Another important part of the CMS training environment is our seminar program, titled the Metalloenzyme Colloquium. Each year, we invite ca. 6-8 outside speakers who are experts in some area of metallobiochemistry and who are known for the interdisciplinary nature of their research. This provides CMS students with a sense for the diversity of roles of metals in biology, the wide variety of research tools that can be applied to study these systems, and a chance to interact with internationally known scientists in this field. Below is a current list of the Metalloenzyme Colloquium speakers scheduled for 2002-2003.
|03/26/2004||Michael Chan||Department of Chemistry, The Ohio State University, Columbus||"Novel Mechanisms for the Activation and/or Sensing of Small Molecules by Protein Cofactors"|
