The Second MCW Redox Biology Symposium, which will be held at the Medical College of Wisconsin and the BloodCenter of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, WI, on April 12-13, 2018, will focus on new frontiers in redox biology. 

The symposium will kick off during the afternoon of Thurs., April 12, 2018, at the Medical College of Wisconsin, with an opening talk by Balaraman Kalyanaraman, PhD, followed by a poster session and reception. All students, trainees, staff, and faculty are welcome come to submit a poster.
