16:00 - SEMINAR - CMCA Seminar Series - Todays Forecast: Be prepared for “An Influx™ of clones!” : T cells are the shock troops of the human immune system – Website | More Information
T cells are the shock troops of the human immune system – they can be ordered to kill what they recognise. Remarkably nearly every T cell is uniquely different to each other due to mutations that occur during the synthesis of their T cell receptor (TCR). It is the highly specific binding of a T (...)

13:20 - Forum - Bioenergy Forum : The Energy and Minerals Institute along with the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry are pleased to invite you to The University of Western Australia’s Bioenergy Forum Website | More Information


Microalgae Energy Farms for Low Cost Biodiesel Production Presented by Dr Peer Schenk

ABSTRACT: From start to finish, biodiesel production from microalgae requires optimisation of all steps towards cost effectiveness and energy efficiency, as current limitations exist mainly (...)
Thursday 19
16:00 - VISITING SPEAKER - A universal code for RNA-protein recognition : PLEASE NOTE TIME CHANGE !!! Previously 1pm, now 4pm. More Information
RNA-protein complexes play essential roles in the regulation of gene expression, by orchestrating the basic growth and maintenance of the cell as well as the complex developmental programs of multicellular eukaryotes. The modes by which proteins bind RNA are diverse and often difficult to predict (...)

16:00 - SEMINAR - CMCA Seminar Series More Information
X-ray crystallography is a method of determining the arrangement of atoms within a crystal. This talk will briefly outline the technique used in the determination of crystal structures with special reference to small molecules. The instrumentation which is available to researchers at UWA for (...)
Tuesday 12
12:00 - SEMINAR - School of Chemistry and Biochemistry Seminar : Discoveries in Catalysis using Nucleophilic N-heterocyclic carbenes More Information
N-Heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) are powerful organocatalysts for a range of chemical transformations. Our studies have been underpinned by new approaches to acyl azolium intermediates and have allowed a number of novel catalytic reactions to be developed. In this presentation studies on the use of (...)
Thursday 21
