Theo Murphy meeting organised by Dr Micaela Matta and Professor Clara Santato.

This interdisciplinary meeting will gather researchers across all career stages in four key domains: synthesis and melanogenesis, biopigment characterisation, modelling and melanin-based devices. We will present the latest discoveries on melanin chromophores and the factors governing ionic and electronic transport. We will discuss holistic structure-property models and demonstrate sustainable technologies for this peculiar class of biomaterials.

The schedule of talks and speaker biographies will be available shortly. Speaker abstracts will be available closer to the meeting date.
