SfRBM leaders met with key representatives from the NIH Center for Scientific Review in Bethesda, MD on December 9 to discuss how the society can provide a readily accessible pipeline of redox expertise for study sections. SfRBM emphasized the importance of redox biology to a vast array of disease processes as well as an anticipated positive trend of our research in next few years. SfRBM presented data that illustrated the current challenges facing redox-related applications and the lack of qualified study section researchers available to review them.

SfRBM's Senior Awards Committee has announced that the recipients of the 2019 Discovery Award are Vsevolod Belousov, Ph.D., and Thomas Michel, MD, Ph.D. Drs. Belousov and Michel are being recognized jointly for their innovative development of chemogenetic approaches to investigate redox biology in vitro and in vivo.

WVU’s Eric E. Kelley, Ph.D., and the University of Minnesota’s Laura Niedernhofer, Ph.D., have published a new study in Redox Biology that could change the way we look at aging in humans. Through a new discovery of the main driver of aging in cells, their research shows that it may be possible to slow the aging process. In the 1950’s, Denham Harmon published a groundbreaking theory correlating antioxidants and aging, but since then there have been few findings that validate directly this theory. This new study provides that validation which has been missing.
