Redox Biology: A Unifying Theme in the Etiology of Human Diseases

This is a co-sponsored session between two FASEB organizations: The American Physiological Society (APS) and the Society for Redox Biology and Medicine (SfRBM). The program will highlight cutting-edge science and new advances in areas related to physiology and redox biology. While both of these fields are broad, this session will narrow the focus to studies involving redox biology in nine major physiological categories:

  • Cardiovascular
  • Clinical/Translational studies
  • Gastrointestinal   
  • Inflammation and Immunity   
  • Metabolism and Bioenergetics   
  • Musculoskeletal/Exercise Physiology   
  • Neuroscience   
  • Renal/Urinary   
  • Respiratory

This session will showcase two keynote speakers whose research and involvement in both societies embodies the overall objective of this joint symposium. Additionally, two top abstracts submitted to this session will be chosen to provide short abstract-based talks, and each will be recognized with a certificate and monetary ($500 US) award.

Chairs: Adam Case (University of Nebraska) & Chris Kevil (LSU Health Sciences Center)
