Prof. Barber will be giving a talk on ‘Light driven electron transport and catalysis in the water splitting enzyme of photosynthesis revealed by crystallography’. The core of his research has been to investigate photosynthesis and the functional role of the photosystems with emphasis on their structures. Much of his work has focused on Photosystem II, a remarkable biological machine able to use light energy to split water into oxygen and reducing equivalents, a reaction upon which we are all dependent.

Date : 12 November 2008, Wednesday
Time : 6.00 pm to 7.30 pm
Venue : NUS Shaw Foundation Alumni House Auditorium, Level 2
