Dear Members of the Society for Free Radical Research Europe
A year has passed since my election as President of SFRR Europe, and I am delighted that the Society has successfully launched several new initiatives, including new Membership categories, Sub-Committees of Council, ‘Early Career Investigator’ Travel Awards and a commitment to host the SFRR-International Meeting 2018 in Lisbon, Portugal in the summer of 2018.
Our Society continues to actively support Free Radical Biology & Medicine and Redox Biology, the two journals adopted by SFRR Europe and SFRBM. Members of SFRR Europe serve on the Editorial Boards and Publication Committees of these journals, and contribute not only a significant number of articles but also play an integral role as reviewers.
The Society held a successful meeting hosted by Prof. Jan Frank in Stuttgart, Germany from 2-4 September 2015, and in 2016 Prof. Zsolt Radek will host our annual meeting in Budapest, Hungary from 8-11 June 2016. I am pleased to announce the invited speakers for the Society’s 2016 Award Lectures: Prof. Henry J. Forman (SFRR Europe Award Lecture), Prof. Anne Negre-Salvayre (SFRR Europe Basic Science Lecture, sponsored by Elsevier) and Prof. Mark P. Mattson (SFRR Europe Clinical Award Lecture, sponsored by DSM). The Society will also select an early career investigator to give the Catherine Pasquier Memorial Award Lecture. The Budapest meeting will have 7 symposia and oral and poster communications. Further information the following website: http://sfrr-e-2016.hu.
Our Society website is undergoing further development, and we welcome comments from the Membership about additional information of interest to established and early career investigators. We have added new entries for membership categories, ‘Early Career Travel Awards’, photo galleries for past SFRR Europe Meetings and the composition of Sub-Committees of Council. Please forward your suggestions for our website directly to Prof. Juan Sastre, General Secretary of SFRR Europe.
I would like to thank the SFRR Europe Executive and Council members for their dedication in running the Society. If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
With best wishes for Christmas and the New Year,
Giovanni E. Mann, PhD
President, SFRR Europe
