The Molecular Enzymology Group of the Biochemical Society held a special 1-day meeting at the Royal Society on ‘Proteins: from Chemical to Physiological Mechanism’. The aim of the meeting was to inform and stimulate discussion on kinetic approaches to the life sciences by bringing together work on dynamic aspects of protein function. The meeting also honoured Professor H. (Freddie) Gutfreund, FRS, on his 80th birthday. Professor Gutfreund persuaded the Executive Committee of the Society to found the Molecular Enzymology Group, the first sub-group of the Society. His view of the strategic value in encouraging like-minded biochemists to interact has done much to provide the critical mass necessary for sustaining excellence in the various sub-disciplines of biochemistry.
