UEA hosts the Biochemical Society-sponsored advanced training day in the School of Chemistry
During July 1st and 2nd, the School of Chemistry hosted a meeting entitled ‘Biophysical Techniques for Probing Biological Systems’. This was amongst the first of a new type of national advanced skills training meeting sponsored by the Biochemical Society, through which early years researchers from around the country gained hands on practical experience of relevant research methods.
The work of the Centre for Molecular and Structural Biochemistry (CMSB) at UEA, which includes researchers in the Schools of Chemistry, Pharmacy and Biological Sciences, is focused on developing and applying biophysical techniques to solve problems in biology. The meeting featured practical modules in nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR), circular dichroism (CD), magnetic circular dichroism (MCD), protein electrochemistry and rapid reaction kinetics, each of which was led by a CMSB researcher.
