Dear colleagues and friends,

This Summer School is one in a series of biennial SFRR Free Radical Schools. This year, it is being organized as a FEBS Advanced Course in partnership with SFRR-Europe and IUBMB and is sponsored by OCC, ProMoAge and COST.

The course “Redox biochemistry: cellular responses and disease relevance” will focus on recent developments in this exciting field of redox biology. Well-established scientists from Europe and the Americas who are at the forefront of their field will present key aspects of this topic: redox control, signaling and cellular adaptations, downstream outcomes. Being especially critical, we will highlight the true evidence on the role of redox-related processes in disease, since too often the simple (clinical) statement “here are oxidants involved, treat with antioxidants” leads to a misjudgment of the situation.

Specifically, the course will focus on examining how changes in redox signalling trigger endogenous adaptation and the crucial role of key adaptive processes in preventing cellular degeneration.

All participants will have the opportunity to interact frequently in a relaxed setting with prominent senior scientists in the field, and to present and discuss their results in poster sessions and oral presentations.

We are looking forward to personally welcoming you in Spetses, to participate in this exciting course!
