Oxygen Radicals (GRS)
Gordon Research Seminar

Reactive Oxygen Species in Health and Disease


February 6-7, 2016


Ventura Beach Marriott
Ventura, CA


Divya Vasudevan & Daniel C J. Ferguson

Meeting Description

The Gordon Research Seminar on Oxygen Radicals 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 goal of this meeting is to evaluate novel developments uncovering the roles of ROS in the maintenance of physiological processes as well as in the propagation of pathologies. Advancements in scientific research and methodological tools are expected to be discussed.
