Theo Murphy international scientific meeting organised by Professor Martin Cann, Dr Vicki Linthwaite and Dr Eoin Cummins.
This meeting will unite researchers from the plant and animal kingdoms to discuss the common goal of understanding the molecular basis of carbon dioxide detection.
Carbon dioxide is essential for life on earth. It is central to physiological processes including photosynthesis, metabolism, homeostasis, chemosensing and pathogenesis. Given recent and rapid developments in our understanding of mechanisms that underpin carbon dioxide detection in both the plant and animal kingdoms, a new forum must be developed to bring together researchers in these fields.
This forum will identify common themes in carbon dioxide detection across different biological systems and exchange methodologies that can be bought to bear on different biological systems. Furthermore, its members will identify new approaches that can benefit our identification of carbon dioxide detection mechanisms across diverse species. The forum will foster the creation of new scientific community/network that will enhance the pursuit of knowledge in this area and form the foundations for future collaborative publications and funding proposals.
Speaker abstracts will be available closer to the meeting. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place.
Meeting papers will be published in a future issue of Interface Focus.
There will be a poster session at 17:00 on Monday 2 December 2019. If you would like to apply to present a poster please submit your proposed title, abstract (not more than 200 words and must be in third person), author list, name of the proposed presenter and institution to the Scientific Programmes team with the subject heading "Carbon Dioxide: poster abstract" no later than Friday 18 October 2019.
Please note that places are limited and posters are selected at the scientific organisers' discretion. Poster abstracts will only be considered if the presenter is registered to attend the meeting.
