Associate Chairs:
Amit Kumar & Nathan Schuld

Meeting Description

The Gordon Research Seminar on Oxidative Stress & 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 discuss recent advances in age-related oxidative stress research. In addition to the research talks, a Keynote Lecture will provide participants with a comprehensive overview in the field of redox biology and a Mentorship Session will focus on grant writing and applying for funding.
