The Biochemical Society meeting “Dynamics within and between proteins” was held recently at the University of Essex. The meeting was enjoyed by all, especially at the BBQ on Wednesday night which accompanied a vibrant poster session. George Jeppesen (left) won the Biochemical Society Centenary poster prize for his poster which contained a 3D kinesin-1 model. George also gave a very interesting oral communication on the ‘Conformational states of kinesin-1 characterised by its mechanical properties’. Congratulations also go to Sílvia Estácio and Hugh Dannatt who took home the two British Biophysical Society poster prizes. The conference dinner was held at the brand new Firstsite venue inColchester, which is not open to the public until later this month. Conference dinner attendees enjoyed a fantastic meal and service and they also got a preview of the exhibitions currently installed.
