Welcome to the next edition of our e-Newsletter bringing you a final update as we approach the start of the 6th World Congress for Hair Research in Cairns from 16-20 June 2010.

KEYNOTE LECTURE
Nobel Laureate, Professor Peter Doherty, University of Melbourne, Australia

We are delighted to have Laureate Professor Peter Doherty give the Opening Keynote Lecture at the Congress.

Professor Peter Doherty shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1996 with Swiss colleague Rolf Zinkernagel, for their discovery of how the immune system recognises virusinfected cells. He was Australian of the Year in 1997, and has since been commuting between St Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis and the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at the University of Melbourne. His research is mainly in the area of defence against viruses. He regularly devotes time to delivering public lectures, writing articles for newspapers and magazines and participating in radio discussions.

Peter Doherty graduated from the University of Queensland in Veterinary Science and became a veterinary officer. Moving to Scotland, he received his PhD from the University of Edinburgh Medical School. He is the first person with a veterinary qualification to win a Nobel Prize.

Peter is also the author of several books, including “A Light History of Hot Air” and “The Beginners Guide to Winning the Nobel Prize”.


KAP NOMENCLATURE WORKSHOP
16 JUNE 2010

Over the years we have seen a proliferation of naming systems for the Keratin Associated Proteins, many of which are still in place despite the introduction of the latest system in 1994. With the discovery of new KAPs, along with many new polymorphic variants of existing KAPs and KAPs in other species there is need for a system that is robust enough to deal with this. So if keratin nomenclature interests you then we would like to encourage you to attend this workshop.

Keratin Associated Protein Nomenclature Workshop

Moderators: Jeff Plowman and Paul Bowden

History of KAP Nomenclature: 11.30-11.40: George Rogers
