Toulouse, France

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the International Advisory Committee and the local Organization Committee, it is our great pleasure to cordially invite you to attend the 14th International Symposium on Applied Bioinorganic Chemistry (ISABC14) which will be held in Toulouse, France from June 7th to 10th 2017.

ISABC14 will cover a wide range of topics in the field of Applied Bioinorganic Chemistry, including interaction of metal ions with biomolecules (proteins, nucleic acids, cofactors etc.),  bioinspired and biomimetic catalysis, metals in medicine, metal ion toxicology and environmental, metal ions in health and diseases, metal ion sensors, metal-based imaging, bioorganometallic chemistry,  biomaterials and all other topics related to metals at the interface of chemistry with biology. ISABC14 is dedicated to promote scientific exchange and personal interaction between participants in an informal atmosphere.

The tentative sessions of ISABC14 will be:

  1. Metals in health and diseases
  2. Metal-based drugs
  3. Metals in environment, biogeochemistry, toxicology and origin of life
  4. New methods around metals in biology
  5. Metals in imaging and sensing
  6. Metalloenzymes, inspiration, mimics, function and inhibition
  7. Metals and biomolecules (nucleic acids, peptides, proteins, amino acids etc.)

Two parallel sessions are organized, as we expect to welcome 200-300 participants. A total of 60 oral presentations will be selected from the submitted abstracts.



As ISABC14 traditionally gathers many scientists having strong interest in the thermodynamics and kinetics of metal complexes, the 2017 meeting has been organized as a back to back conference with the International Symposium on Metal Complexes (ISMEC 2017) that will take place on June 11-15 in Dijon, France.


We are looking forward to welcoming you to Toulouse in June 2017.
