Meeting Description

The Gordon Research Seminar on Oxidative Stress and Disease is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

The focus of this meeting is to provide an update on recent cutting-edge Redox Biology research and its applications in medicine. In addition to scientifically stimulating environment, a Keynote Lecture will reconnect the participants with the inspiration and aspirations part of science and a career development session will focus on alternative careers in PhD and work-life balance in scientific arena.

The conference sessions names are displayed below. Please submit your abstracts for talks and posters soon. We are looking forward to your participation.

  • Keynote Session: Redox Reactions in Diseases
  • Profiling Redox Status in Human Major Diseases
  • Redox Mechanisms in Diseases
  • Tools for Career Advancement in Science
