BIOPHYSCHEM2011: A joint meeting of the Australian Society for Biophysics and the RACI Physical Chemistry Division foreword
[extract] This Research Front of the Australian Journal of Chemistry is aligned with the BIOPHYSCHEM2011 meeting, a joint conference of the Australian Society for Biophysics and the Physical Chemistry Division of the RACI, which was held at the University of Wollongong from 3 to 6 December 2011. Just shy of 200 delegates made the journey to the Illawarra as these two societies came together for the first time for a national meeting. The idea for this collaboration sprang from the inaugural Australian Biophysical Chemistry Workshop, coordinated by Dr Ron Clarke (U. Sydney) and Dr Tak Kee (U. Adelaide) in 2010. The success of this workshop, in drawing in members from across the physical chemistry and biophysics communities, inspired this joint national meeting. It was a great success and well supported by members across the communities.
