Redox Regulation of Metabolic Processes

Event Date: 19 September, 2016 to 25 September, 2016

This course aims to gain an understanding of the role of reactive oxygen species in metabolism and in the regulation of pivotal metabolic processes. This course will cover these new developments in five days with different focus: general principles of redox regulation (day 1), the interaction between reactive species and metabolic processes and signalling cascades (day 2), novel methods and approaches (day 3), mitochondria as sources and targets of reactive species (day 4), protein oxidation and its effects on protein maintenance and turnover (day 5). The program includes lectures, posters, tutorials (“meet the expert” sessions) and oral poster presentation sessions that will enable young scientists to interact with some of the best international experts in the field of free radical research and redox regulation.

The activity is organized by Niki Chondrogianni (MC Representative from Greece, WG1) This Training School is co-organized together with FEBS (Federation of European Biochemical Societies), one of the most relevant European society in the field of the Biomedicine, and with EU-ROS COST Action BM1203.
