In this month’s newsletter we are delighted to introduce the speakers for the next webinar and highlight the current open calls for funding opportunities for Early Career Researchers from the society.
Last month our webinar was focused on successful academic career progression, with input from Dr Jörg Mansfeld and Dr Eduardo Balsa Martínez, two exceptional scientists in the redox field. The webinar received very good feedback and we are planning on running more academic career progression talks focusing on career transitions in the future.
If you were not able to attend the webinar, you can find the recording in the SFRR-E intranet.
Our next webinar will be on the 2nd May 2023 at 15:00 h CET and we are happy to announce this month’s speakers:
Chrisa Xirouchaki, PhD
Chrisa is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology at Monash University, Clayton, Victoria, Australia. She received her PhD in 2016 from the University of Melbourne and her research focuses on redox metabolism in skeletal muscle and exercise physiology.
Flávia Rezende, PhD
Flávia is a Research Scientist at the Institute for Cardiovascular Physiology at the Goethe-University in Frankfurt (Germany) and received her PhD in 2012. She is interested in decoding how the metabolism of fatty acids, cholesterol and amino acids in endothelial cells controls cardiovascular function and studies the effects of oxidative products herein.
