Redox Biology Interest Group
Join us for our inaugural seminar talk in September 1 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. ET with Dr. Boyi Gan!
Dr. Gan, a distinguished biologist who has published groundbreaking studies on the molecular underpinnings of metabolism and ferroptosis in cancer, is a professor at the Department of Experimental Radiation Oncology at The University of Texas at MD Anderson Cancer Center.
The NIH Redox Biology Interest Group (NIH-Redox) hosts seminar series that promote all aspects of basic, translational, and clinical research in redox biology and metabolism in health and diseases. The NIH-Redox group works to bring together individuals from a wide range of fields that are interested in understanding the roles of redox signaling and metabolism in physiology and human diseases.
The NIH-Redox SIG draws from its historic roots with the Oxygen Club of Greater Washington founded in 1987, which along with its sister Free Radical SIG was one the first interdisciplinary groups organized to enhance collaborations in study and discussion on redox biology. Our newly rebranded NIH-Redox SIG is dedicated to following into the footsteps of the Oxygen Club by promoting diffusion of knowledge and research through seminars covering topics that span mechanisms of redox homeostasis and stress, mitochondrial functions and organelle signaling, NOX and NOS biology, intermediate metabolism, immunobiology, DNA damage and repair, redox-based pharmacology and radiation treatments, redox analytical tools, and the chemistry of free radicals. The group also aims at fostering interactions and collaborations across the NIH intramural community and with scientists from extramural research institutions, and beyond. The NIH-Redox group will provide a unique platform for many productive collaborations among its members and across disciplines.
Our group meets monthly on Thursday from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m Eastern Time, from September to June. Each meeting features one 50-min presentation followed by a 10 min Q&A from early career and senior intramural or extramural investigators.
All our meetings are currently virtual. Link will be sent before seminars to attendees (subscribers only)
