The Tenth Anniversary Keele Meeting on Aluminium

'Illuminating and Elucidating Aluminium’s Exposome: From Geochemistry to Neurochemistry, From Microbe to Man'

Saturday 23rd February to Wednesday 27th February 2013

Winchester, England


'This is the Tenth Anniversary Meeting of the Keele Meetings and the aims over the past almost two decades have remained steadfastly to promote and communicate research into the myriad ways that aluminium impacts upon life. It is incredibly satisfying that we have come so far as to be able to announce the Tenth Meeting. This series of international meetings has been a success because of our collective need to communicate our research to an informed group of people who share a passion for aluminium, and in deed, for living in the Aluminium Age. Without such a group and this series of meetings there would be very few avenues through which aluminium research could be actively communicated and the subject would suffer should such a vacuum exist. The mantle of improving our knowledge about the natural history of aluminium would not be taken up by others and it would certainly not be supported by those with the most to gain from our efforts, the aluminium industry.'

Christopher Exley, PhD, Professor in Bioinorganic Chemistry at The Birchall Centre, Lennard-Jones Laboratories, Keele University, Staffordshire, said: " I am resolved that it should be the most successful yet and that it should act as the platform for another ten meetings or more!"
