iEOS2015 Invited Speaker Announcement – Dr Nathan Bailey, St Andrew University. Evolutionary Convergence in Crickets on Hawaiian islands !! #iEOS2015

Invited Speaker Announcement
Dr Nathan Bailey, University of St Andrews

We are delighted to announce that Dr Nathan Bailey will be speaking at iEOS2015. Nathan has been unravelling the convergent evolution in crickets on Hawaiian islands (see his recent Current Biology Paper) – now thats what you call field work to envy. Register for the conference to hear this great scientific storey presented by a quiet amazing speaker.

Heavy metals are essential for life, however, paradoxically exploitation of land for mineral extraction and manufacturing industry results in the release of large quantities of heavy metals that can be toxic to the natural environment. My research portfolio is designed to exploit state-of-the-art genomic, proteomic and metabolomic techniques to study the mechanisms by which biological systems handle heavy metals assessing: their impact as pollutants, their involvement in disease and the basic mechanisms by which they are bound within biological systems.
