King’s College London Redox Biology & Medicine Symposium

One Birdcage Walk , London

21 Sep NEV-main-LondonLandscape

This one-day symposium will include presentations from leaders in the field of redox biology and medicine. This will include work that enhances our basic understanding of redox chemistry, biochemistry through to studies exploring the roles of such reactions and mechanisms in cells and tissues during health and disease. Examples of how such advances are culminating in translational studies, in which redox state is pharmacologically manipulated in man for therapeutic purposes, will also be presented.

The symposium will take place in central London – a few minutes’ walk from Westminster tube station at One Birdcage Walk in the historic Institution of Mechanical Engineers. There will also be opportunities for trainees to present their latest work in poster presentations.

The meeting will be free to all attendees and includes registration, as well as food and refreshments during lunch and at the post-symposium get together.
