Summer 2013

The Redox Biology Program hosts a monthly "Works-in-Progress" session.

In addition, Albert Girotti, PhD, hosts a noon to 1 p.m. Thursday journal club each week in Room 376 of the Biochemistry Department.

The focus of the Oxidative Signaling Journal Club is to examine recent manuscripts regarding oxidative signaling pathways with responses ranging from cell proliferation to cell senescence or death. Novel sensing mechanisms and sensor proteins responding to ROS or RNS redox are of particular interest.
