Redox-omic Technologies and their Application in Health and Disease – Summer School Spetses Greece

September 17, 2018 - September 23, 2018



Please see the official website for more information and registration at: https://redoxomics.febsevents.org/

There are no more bursaries available, however, a few places remain for participants who have alternative sources of funding or are able to fund themselves

Course overview

This Summer School will provide leading young scientists and researchers with an understanding of the roles of modern technologies in identifying oxidative changes to biomolecules and enabling our understanding of cellular redox signalling processes, which are important emerging areas of biochemistry and biomedical science.  The course will focus on the huge improvements in omics technologies in recent years and how they underpin functional understanding of redox biology. Topics to be covered in lectures, presentations and discussions include: alterations that redox processes make to biomolecules and the principles of redox regulation; novel methods to identifying oxidative modifications to biomolecules and their functional consequences, including genomic, metabolomic, lipidomic and proteomic approaches.  Participants will have the opportunity to interact frequently in a relaxed setting with prominent senior scientists in the field from Europe and the US, and to present and discuss their results in poster sessions and oral presentations.  In addition to scientific sessions, the course will also inform the young researchers about the scientific framework in Europe and cover principles of equality and diversity.

  • Lectures will outline most recent developments in different aspects of redox-omic technologies and their application in health and disease
  • Poster sessions and “one poster/three slides” presentations will allow young scientists to present their own work, to seek for helpful discussions and to establish collaborations.
  • “Meet the expert” sessions will allow for extensive young/senior scientist discussions.
  • Social events will include a boat trip around Spetses Island.
