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 focus of this meeting is to explore the role of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in health and disease. This will encompass both the traditional view of ROS as contributors to oxidative stress and the emerging concept that ROS mediate physiological signaling processes.
Seed funding for this new Gordon Research Seminar has been provided by Merck Research Laboratories.
