CBMNET AND BIOCATNET: IMPORT AND EXPORT OF SMALL MOLECULES FOR BIOCATALYSIS

12th-13th September 2017, Waldorf Astoria, The Caledonian, Princes Street, Edinburgh EH1 2AB

Biochemists and microbiologists have long seen whole-cell biocatalysis as an area with great promise for chemical synthesis, for instance to address co-factor recycling or to enable construction of non-natural biosynthetic cascades, however significant challenges occur when substrate and product cannot be easily imported and exported from the cell. This event brings together academic scientists with diverse interests in the import and export of small molecules, alongside industrial scientists who are interested in improving the robustness of whole-cell biocatalysts.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • William Dowham, The University of Texas – Structure, Assembly And Function Of Cell Membrane Components
  • Beppe Battaglia, UCL – Encapsulating material in nanocontainers for bionanotechnological applications
  • Andrew Collis, GSK – Whole cell biotransformations: dead or alive
