Nucleic Acids: 'From Nanotechnology through to Structural Biology'.

Half-day Symposium focusing on nucleic acids research.

The Leicester Centre for Chemical Biology is organising a half-day symposium on the afternoon of the 6th March entitled 'Nucleic Acids: From Nanotechnology through to Structural Biology'.

Nucleic acids research continues to have a major impact on a wide range of fields at the key interfaces between chemistry, the life science and physics, with applications ranging from DNA chips and nanotechnology through to novel catalysts and diagnostic devices. LCCB is organising a half-day symposium that explores these highly active interdisciplinary fields with three keynote presentations.

The three speakers that have been invited are experts in the field of nucleic acid nanotechnology (Prof. Andrew Turberfield, Oxford), nucleic acid chemical biology (Dr Jason Micklefield, Manchester)and RNA biophysics (Prof. David Lilley, Dundee). There is no charge for attending, but we require approximate numbers for catering purposes, so please register with Ms Debbie Cattermoul (; Phone 0116 252 2100).

Date: March 6

Time: 14:00 - 17:15
