7th Annual MIBio Conference

MIBio 2017: Stability of Biopharmaceuticals – From Molecular Interactions to Successful Products, 4th October 2017, Downing College, Cambridge

The MIBio conference series engages world leading experts from industry and academia in a discussion on how the latest molecular interaction based discoveries can be exploited in biopharmaceutical formulation to produce more effective, patient-friendly and safer therapeutic products.

MIBio 2017 expects more than 100 industrial and academic research attendees to create an interesting and stimulating event fostering new collaborations and discoveries that will help steer the development of the next generation of formulation technologies. We will be inviting abstracts for poster submissions and welcome applications for sponsor and exhibitor slots on the day. We look forward to seeing you at MIBio 2017!

MIBio 2017 is organised by the Formulation Science and Technology Group (FSTG) and the Joint Colloids Group (SCI) of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) together with the Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences (APS).



McBain Medal: Watching Colloids Work, 12th December 2017, SCI, London, UK

The McBain medal is awarded annually by the SCI/RSC Joint Colloids Group to recognise a rising star in colloid and interface science. Dr Rico Tabor from Monash University has been awarded the 2017 McBain medal for his work on surfactants and responsive colloidal systems. Dr Tabor obtained his PhD from the University of Bristol and then moved to Melbourne, where his research focuses on designing complex systems of particles and surfactants that respond to light, pH, or magnetic fields. This meeting will showcase some of the latest work in colloids that respond to external stimuli, and state-of-the-art techniques to ‘watch them work’, with applications in areas as diverse as smart water treatment and functional foods. A dedicated poster session will also give students the opportunity to present their work.

A flyer for the event can be found at this link.

Sir Eric Rideal Travel Bursaries

The Sir Eric Rideal Travel Bursaries are a joint bursary between the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Society of Chemical Industry.  It provides funds for attendance at a conference in the field of colloid and surface science.

We particularly welcome applications from delegates who wish to attend the UK COLLOIDS 2017 conference.

Sir Eric Rideal (1890-1974) was the founding Chair of the RSC Colloid and Interface Science Group.

The Rideal Trust annually offers financial assistance to promising academic research workers in the general field of colloid and surface science to attend conferences and/or to visit relevant research institutions.

Awards of up to £500 will be made on a competitive basis to assist with travel and/or subsistence and/or conference registration fees.

There are two closing dates for applications each year:

15 April (for travel planned between 1 June and 31 December)

15 October (for travel planned between 1 December and 30 June).

Please contact the SCI Awards department for further information.
