The University of York provided the venue for this highly successful collaboration between the Biochemical Society and The Physiological Society, with over 800 attendees enjoying ten colloquia on subjects relevant to both societies. The meeting dinner was held at the National Railway Museum in York, which holds the award European Museum of the Year 2001. Diners were treated to a fabulous meal in the austere company of some of the country's finest locomotives, including the Mallard (pictured above), Evening Star, a reproduction of Stephenson's Rocket and Eurostar. New at the museum is the first ever Bullet train to be displayed outside of Japan. The report below is only a snapshot of what went on at the York Meeting. For papers from the speakers, take a look at Biochemical Society Transactions 30 (2) to be published in May.
