Join us at ISM9, hosted by the historic King’s College London, in the iconic Bush House, a venue steeped in incredible history. Originally designed for the BBC World Service in the 1920s, Bush House’s neoclassical architecture and broadcasting legacy captivate visitors. Acquired by King’s College London, this landmark now serves as a prestigious venue for international events. King’s, founded in 1829 within the tradition of the Church of England by King George IV and the Duke of Wellington, is among England’s oldest and most esteemed universities, with a legacy of inspiring societal progress through learning and research.
Throughout its illustrious history, King’s College London has nurtured exceptional minds who have left an indelible impact on the world. With fourteen Nobel Prize recipients among its community, including Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu for his role in South Africa’s anti-apartheid campaign and Professor Michael Levitt for his ground-breaking work in chemical systems modelling, King’s continues to make transformative contributions to society. Distinguished alumni such as the renowned British sprinter and world-record holder Dina Asher-Smith, biophysicist Dr. Rosalind Franklin, famous for her work in X-ray spectroscopy, and acclaimed children’s writer Sir Michael Morpurgo have all emerged from the halls of King’s, leaving a lasting legacy in their respective fields.
At ISM9, experience the fusion of two rich histories—Bush House and King’s College London—whilst exploring the heart of London’s academic institutions, research centres, cultural treasures, and scenic riverside walks along the Thames River. We look forward to welcoming you to ISM9, where tradition and innovation meet to drive ground-breaking research in metallomics.
