Welcome to Paris Redox World Congress 2017

Dear Colleagues,

The 19th International Conference on Oxidative Stress Reduction, Redox Homeostasis and Antioxidants will be held at the Université Pierre & Marie Curie, Campus Jussieu in Paris, France on June 26 and 27, 2017. 

During Paris Redox World Congress 2017, we will discuss the role of antioxidants as modulators of redox signaling pathways rather than players that counteract oxidative stress. Antioxidants affect cell signaling provided by redox processes. Mitochondria provide localized signaling and produce reactive oxygen species, ROS (i.e. Superoxide and Hydrogen Peroxide), which are signaling molecules generated by the respiratory chain.

Furthermore, we will analyze the mechanisms by which cells respond to oxidative stress and prevent cell damage and cell death, with a particular focus on neurons and neurological conditions, strokes, Alzheimer’s disease, kidney, muscle, and liver pathologies. Additionally, the mechanisms of redox regulation of cellular processes will be discussed.

Little is known on the specific targets of ROS and how oxidant and antioxidant signals are transmitted in the cell. To understand mechanisms of redox control and their role in oxidative stress pathologies and aging, it is necessary to identify and dissect the function of the key players of redox processes. We will also highlight oxidative stress evaluation and discuss the recent advances on biomarkers, related to redox alteration.

Paris Redox 2017 aims to make an important contribution towards a better understanding of redox control in physiological and pathological states that will lead to new therapeutic and disease-preventive agents.

Among strategic topics discussed during ISANH Redox 2017:

  • Reactive Sulfide Species, Oxidative Stress and Redox Regulation-Modulation
  • Oxidative Stress, Redox Regulation-Modulation and Redox-Active Agents 
  • Nrf2, Redox Signaling & Gene Regulation
  • Oxidative Stress & Chronic Diseases
    • Oxidative Stress & Ocular Diseases
    • Oxidative Stress & Fertility
    • Oxidative Stress & Cancer
    • Oxidative Stress & Metabolic Syndrome
  • Oxidative Stress, New Bio-sensors & Biomarkers: Imaging of Oxidative Stress in 2017
  • Oxidative Stress, Antioxidants & Innovations

We look forward to meeting you in Paris for this exciting program in June.
