Professor Wedd attended the Sixth Asian Conference on Biological Inorganic Chemistry in Hong Kong and presented an invited paper entitled “Metallo-Oxidase Enzymes”.

The group’s application for support for 2013-15 to the Australian Research Council was successful: “How does Redox Cycling Drive the Metabolism of the Essential Metals Iron and Copper?”

Jens Brose spoke at the Inorganic Chemistry Symposium of the Victorian Branch of the Royal Australian Institute about “Glutaredoxin 1: A Redox Enzyme and Cu(I) Binding Protein?” He was awarded an ‘Honourable Mention’ as one of the three best oral presentations. David Hayne (Donnelly Group) also achieved this distinction.
