Welcome to the International Conference on Cytochrome P450
The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia
23 – 27 June 2019


We cordially invite you to Brisbane, Australia, for the 21st International Conference on Cytochrome P450: Biochemistry and Biophysics. The Conference will be held at the University of Queensland, Brisbane, from 23 – 27 June 2019.

The Conference on Cytochrome P450 enzymes was established in 1976 and has developed into a biennial international series with meetings rotating between Europe, North America and the Asia-Pacific. The Brisbane meeting will be the first to be held in the Southern Hemisphere.

ICCP450 in Australia will bring together researchers and students from diverse disciplines who study P450s from various perspectives and for different reasons. The conference programme will consist of a rich schedule of presentations at the forefront of P450 research in four overarching themes:

  • P450 biochemistry, biophysics and structural biology
  • P450s in drug metabolism and disease
  • P450s across the biosphere: microbes, plants and insects and their interactions
  • Synthetic biology of P450s: engineering novel systems for pharmaceutical and other applications

ICCP450 2019 will provide the opportunity for established and emerging researchers from academia, industry and clinical medicine from around the world to come together and share their research on this fascinating group of enzymes.

A sophisticated and multicultural city with a mild, sub-tropical climate and a relaxed lifestyle, Brisbane hosts world class universities, internationally recognised research institutes and hospitals. It is an ideal base for exploring some of the great attractions that Australia and New Zealand have to offer. The timing of ICCP450 2019 at the start of the Northern summer provides a perfect opportunity to extend your trip ‘down under’ to enjoy some sightseeing. Brisbane is a short drive to the beaches of the Gold and Sunshine Coasts, or to rainforest in local national parks. It’s also just a short flight to the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef, Uluru, Sydney with its iconic Opera House, cosmopolitan Melbourne and the wineries around Adelaide .

We invite you to present your work to the international P450 research community and look forward to welcoming you to Brisbane in June 2019.
