Addendum: Clara Ortegón Salas won a short talk prize

Congratulations to Clara Ortegón Salas, whose talk was awarded with "Best short talk" on the conference  "Redox Signalling in Physiology, Ageing and Disease", a joint Biochemical Society and BSRA Scientific Conference.

The conference took place in Newcastle, UK, from 1st to 3rd of July 2019.

The goal of this meeting was to bring biochemists, cell and systems biologists investigating redox-signalling mechanisms in a variety of systems, together with those working on the biological mechanisms underlying ageing and age-associated diseases. As such this meeting provided an interdisciplinary forum for discussion of new approaches to the study of redox regulation, the mechanisms involved, and the role of redox dysregulation in health, ageing and disease.

Based on her given talk, the organizers invited her to write a mini-review, that led to a publication, which was published on march 2020, in Portland Press, under the name "Signal-regulated oxidation of proteins via MICAL" and can be found here:

RTG 1947 Calendar Events

From October 2014 the DFG is funding the Research Training Group 1947 Biochemical, Biophysical, and Biomedical Effects of Reactive Oxygen and Nitrogen Species on Biological Membranes - "BiOx" - at the University of Greifswald and the University Medicine Greifswald.

Biological Membranes define living cells and determine their interaction with their environment. Reactive oxygen and nitrogen species (ROS/RNS) profoundly affect the physico-chemical properties and thereby the physiological functions of biological membranes.

In an interdisciplinary and interfaculty approach we aim to overcome the traditional boarders between biochemistry, biophysics, medicine, botany, and pharmacy to analyse the mechanisms of ROS/RNS production and interaction with all constitutents of biological membranes.
