Healthy dose of chemistry coming to Montreal
Date:6/2/2011

Montreal, May 31, 2011 To mark the International Year of Chemistry, the 94th Canadian Chemistry Conference and Exhibition will take place at the Palais des congrs de Montral from June 5 to 9, 2011. The gathering is the biggest ever annual event in Canada to focus on science and the practice of chemistry.

Robert Prud'homme, director of the Department of Chemistry at the Universit de Montral, and Ann English, director of the Centre for Biological Applications of Mass Spectrometry at Concordia University, are chairs of the event's organizing and scientific committees. They encourage journalists to attend the conference to become better acquainted with the latest research and scientific breakthroughs. "The conference theme, 'Chemistry and Health,' emphasizes chemistry's importance in all spheres of human activity especially in the realm of health," note the chairs.

Below, grouped by theme, are some symposia highlights:

Research on biopolymers and biomaterials

Scientists are focusing on spider silk and the byssal threads of the blue mussel. Among materials with medical applications, the development of a biodegradable polymer should draw attention along with contrast agents for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), artificial synapses and cell-recovery strategies for the purpose of tissular implantation.

  • 00211 Self‐immolative Polymers: A New Class of Biodegradable Materials
  • 00253 Natural and Transgenic Spider Silk Proteins
  • 00262 Development of Films Made of Proteins Extracted from Anchoring Threads of Marine Mussels
  • 00261 Smart Lipid‐and Polymer‐Based Substrates for Artificial Synapses
  • 00215 Investigation of Auto Cross‐linking Polyelectrolytes to Conformally Coat Individual Living Yeast Cells

Canadian chemists and cancer therapeutics

The "Cancer Therapeutics" symposium will present the work of Canadian researchers who are tackling mechanism
