Michael Davies, Ph.D., University of Copenhagen - Denmark
Length of session: 60 minutes

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The abundance and high reactivity of proteins with many oxidants suggests that these are likely to be major targets for damage in biological systems subject to oxidative stress. Considerable evidence suggests that this is correct, but whether this is important quantitatively in a disease process is often poorly defined, as the presence of damage does not always equate to its importance. This webinar will discuss the importance of numbers (i.e. quantitative data) in determining whether, where and how much damage occurs to proteins. It will address the factors that govern the extent and types of protein modification and how this can be used to develop strategies to minimize such damage in human disease.

PROGRAM FORMAT

Members can attend a SFRBM Virtual Free Radical School session right from your office or home. All you need to participate is a telephone and a computer with high speed internet connection. The audio is delivered over the telephone (toll-free). Registrants will be provided call in/login information 2-3 days prior to the session and a URL to access the presentation right on the web in real time.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Dr. Michael Davies was educated at the University of York, UK.  He worked at the University of York and subsequently at the Heart Research Institute, Sydney, Australia where he served as Deputy Director, and then Director, before moving to the Panum Institute, University of Copenhagen, Denmark in 2014 after being awarded a Novo Nordisk Laureate Grant.  Dr. Davies is Editor-in-Chief of Free Radical Research, an Editor of Biochemical Journal and an Associate Editor of Photochemistry and Photobiology and is a member of many Editorial Boards. He has previously served as President of the International Society for Free Radical Research, the Australasian Society for Free Radical Research and as a Vice-President of the International EPR Society. He is currently President-Elect of the Society for Free Radical Research - Europe.  His research is focussed on kinetic and mechanistic studies of protein modification by reactive species (e.g. radicals, two-electron oxidants, reactive sugars and carbonyls) and their role in disease. He has published over 300 papers, written one monograph, edited 8 books and holds a number of active patents.
