The 17th RSC Chemical Biology and Bioorganic Group (CBBG) Firbush conference, 8th-10th September 2017

8 September 2017 16:00 - 10 September 2017 13:00, Killin, United Kingdom

​The meeting is co-Chaired by Prof. Dom Campopiano (Edinburgh) and Dr. Andrew Jamieson (Glasgow). This CBBG meeting is intended to cover a broad range of chemical biology and bio-organic chemistry. 

The programme will start late afternoon on Friday 8th and finish at lunch time on Sunday 10th, with plenary lectures scheduled for Friday (Prof Gideon Grogan (York)) and Saturday (Prof Liz Nolan (MIT)) evenings. As the Firbush venue has limited capacity (~34) attendance will be restricted. We hope to bring together established and younger academics (fellows & new lecturers). It is anticipated that about two-thirds of those attending will be able to give seminars (~20 mins). These will be selected from submitted titles.

Firbush (post code: FK21 8SU) is the field centre for the University of Edinburgh and is situated in fabulous scenery in the southern highlands at the end of Loch Tay. The nearest town is Killin. To enjoy the wonderful surroundings, Saturday afternoon is left free for walking, windsurfing, sailing, mountain biking, golfing etc. Further information can be found at:

As a field centre, the accommodation is "basic" with four people per room in bunk-beds. Of course alternative accommodation can be found at the nearby town of Killin (B&Bs, hotels). The conference facilities are excellent with a new, comfortable, 40-seater seminar room with Powerpoint projector.

The event runs not-for-profit/break even and the cost of attending is £200 (includes 2 nights B&B and 2 dinners) and £125 for those not staying at Firbush. The cost also includes return travel from Edinburgh airport/Waverley train station or Glasgow airport/Central train Station to Firbush. 

Please do not hesitate to contact either Dom or Andrew if you have any questions regarding the meeting. To register your interest in attending please e-mail Andrew ( indicating whether you would like to present including a title, and your travel and accommodation preferences.
