Subcellular location of PKCalphaII-GFP (green) in Green Monkey COS-7 cells using laser scanning confocal microscopy two days after transfection. The actin cytoskeleton is stained with Texas Red-phalloidin and the endoplasmic reticulum (purple) identified with an antibody to calreticulin.

Mission Statement

The Development and Disease Theme Panel exists to act as conduit for the promotion of biochemistry in relation to the study of normal or aberrant development of organisms and the aetiology and biochemical basis of disease states, with an ultimate aim of translation of biochemical concepts into improved clinical practice. We aim to focus on the professional interests of biochemists whose interests lie at the interface between basic research and human, animal or plant pathophysiology.

About the Development and Disease Theme Panel

The 15 members of each Theme Panel will meet, at least twice a year, to;

  • put forward ideas for Focused Meetings
  • consider proposals from other scientists within their field of expertise (referee the proposal)
  • highlight to the Meetings Board areas of hot science that should be in the programme
  • form part of the Science Advisory Committee for each Annual Meeting (BioScience)
  • report to the Meetings Board
  • develop interdisciplinary activities and collaborate with appropriate sister societies.

The Development and Disease Theme Panel is Theme Panel VII within the Biochemical Society. The group continues to represent broad interest in the general area of development and disease and plays a major role in organizing Society Meetings across diverse areas of disease research and education.

The Development and Disease Theme Panel welcomes suggestions for Biochemical Society meetings from all members of the scientific community. If you have an idea for a meeting, and wish to have an informal discussion with a member of a Theme Panel, you are welcome to contact that member. If you wish to submit a formal proposal for a meeting, complete the relevant form and forward it to [email protected].
