Dear members of the Biometals community,

Discussions among scientists in our Biometals community have shown that it would be interesting to set up monthly webinars on metals in biology.

Here we are!

Together with the Cassyni platform, Springer and the International Biometals society monthly Biometals webinars will start in 2024.

We hope that this series of events will help all members of our research community to stay in contact, spread our discoveries, discuss new data, and establish fruitful collaborations, before we can meet again face-to-face in a future Biometals symposium that is planned to take place in summer 2025.

Please mark your calendars for the first webinar which will be at 3pm (CET Paris) on January 16th 2024, Tuesday. Here is the link to the webinar:

We are aware that this schedule may not be great for all of you, but it has been chosen to cover a broad international area. For those who are not available to attend the live webinar, a recorded presentation will also be available on the platform.

It will be with two speakers, one senior scientist and one author of a recent Biometals published article.  Free of access, each webinar will be accessible live on the Cassyni Platform followed by questions & and answers time. It will also be recorded and be accessible (if accepted by the speaker) on the platform. A DOI number will be assigned to the recorded presentation.

For any further questions you may have on the Cassyni platform and format of the webinars, please contact the responsible publisher Dr. Cansu Kaya ( or both co-editors in chief of Biometals : Dr. Isabelle Michaud-Soret ( and Dr. Christopher Rensing ( For technical questions please contact

The program (still under construction) will be available on the Cassyni platform and on the new International Biometals Society (IBS) website ( ), which we encourage you to visit.

We would recommend to subscribe to the series here to receive updates about upcoming webinars.

Please feel free to pass on this information to interested colleagues and students.

I look forward to seeing you online soon,

Isabelle Michaud-Soret,

On the behalf of Biometals International Society and the Biometals journal
