The conference, known more simply as CanBIC, focuses on the intricate connections and functions of metals in biological systems. It includes a wide range of symposia: from the synthetic chemistry of the porphyrins to the toxicological effects and transport of metals in organisms, to the spectroscopic measurement in metal binding sites, to nanobiology and the theoretical understanding of electronic control of function. I am sure the beauty of Georgian Bay with its thirty thousand islands, and the ruggedness of the landscape will promote numerous rewarding scientific exchanges.

The 2nd  Georgian Bay International Conference on Bioinorganic Chemistry (abbreviated as CanBIC) continues the tradition established by the International Conference on Biological Inorganic Chemistry (ICBIC) that takes place around the world every two years of bringing together scientists researching the vitally important biological chemistry of metals.  This present conference may be the first in Canada  specifically focused on bioinorganic chemistry with such an international participation.

The conference will comprise 3 days of talks and posters  the focus will be on the bioinorganic chemistry of the porphyrinoids (all rings; all metals; heme proteins), of the metallothioneins, of the Group 11 and 12 metals, of the toxic metals (especially As), and of other systems of bioinorganic interest. Symposia will include spectroscopic studies (including magnetic circular dichroism, resonance Raman, EPR, IR); structural aspects from NMR and XAFS techniques, and theoretical results (especially application of ground state DFT and TD-DFT calculations to metal binding sites in biological systems). The symposium on heme binding proteins will bring into focus approaches to alleviate the devastating effects of the MRSA bacteria now sweeping hospitals across North America.

This is a satellite meeting to the Canadian National Chemistry Conference to be held in Hamilton, Ontario, May 30th - June 3rd, 2009 . All CSC attendees are welcome to start their bioinorganic experience at CanBIC in Parry Sound!
