Symposium Honours the Legacy of Renowned Biophysicist Mårten Wikström

Ville Kaila (SFB 1078 Mercator Fellow) is organising the symposium "Mechanisms of Primary Energy Transduction in Biology" on 26 April in Helsinki, Finland. Organised to commemorate Wikström's legacy, the symposium promises to provide participants with a comprehensive overview of the latest developments in the field.

In honour of the late Mårten Wikström, the symposium "Mechanisms of Primary Energy Transduction in Biology" offers a dynamic programme showcasing cutting-edge research in the field: From deciphering energy transduction mechanisms to exploring its molecular complexitiy in different protein models, experts will gather to celebrate Wikström's contributions to the field.

Ville Kaila (Professor of Biochemistry at Stockholm University and SFB 1078 Mercator Fellow) is organising the symposium on 26 April in Helsinki, Finland. He's a former student of Mårten Wikström and a long-time research colleague.

Kaila's opening remarks will set the stage for discussions on primary energy transduction, followed by Sir John Walker from the University of Cambridge, who will provide a historical perspective on Wikström's impact on oxidative phosphorylation. Notable speakers include Joachim Heberle from the FU Berlin and speaker of the SFB 1078, who will talk about ion translocation in microbial rhodopsins.
