The 18th RSC Chemical Biology and Bioorganic Group (CBBG) Firbush conference, 6th-8th September 2019

6 September 2019 17:00 - 8 September 2019 12:00, Killin, United Kingdom

The theme of the 18th RSC Chemical Biology and Bio-Organic Group (CBBG) meeting is 'enzymes', however is intended to cover a broad range of chemical biology and bio-organic chemistry. The meeting is co-Chaired by Prof. Dom Campopiano (Edinburgh) and Dr. Andrew Jamieson (Glasgow). 

The programme will start late afternoon on Friday 6th and finish at lunch time on Sunday 8th, with plenary lectures scheduled for Friday (Prof. Helen Hailes (UCL)) and Saturday (Prof. Max Cryle (Monash)) evenings. As the Firbush venue has limited capacity (~40) 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.
