The 5th International Conference on Metallothionein will be held in Beijing, China, 8–12 October 2005. The theme of this meeting will be on “Metals and Metallothionein in Biology and Medicine.” The four previous meetings in this series were held in Switzerland, Japan, and the USA. This meeting, which will be held under IUPAC auspices, will address most of the recent findings on the structure and biological functions of metallothionein, along with studies on metals, especially on oxidative stress, gene expression, signal transduction pathways, carcinogenesis, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease. Topics related to toxicology and control of metal pollution in soil and water will also be covered. This conference will provide an opportunity to bring together scientists from both academia and industry to communicate their recent findings and establish collaborations with Chinese colleagues.
The conference organizers are Dr. Binggen Ru, Peking University, China <firstname.lastname@example.org>, and Dr. M. George Cherian, University of Western Ontario, Canada <email@example.com>.
