Society for Free Radical Research - Europe


Dear SFRR-E members,

J.SastreOur last SFRR-E Annual Meeting held in Vienna, Austria in June 2023 was organized excellently by Prof. Florian Gruber together with the local organizers, particularly Dr. Brigitte Winklhofer-Roob and the Secretariat Conventive. We were delighted that our annual meeting attracted almost 300 participants. The meeting started with a friendly Meet-the-Professor-Session led by our Early Career Researcher (ECR) subcommittee. The high quality scientific programme included 5 Award Lectures, 5 Symposia with 15 invited speakers, 2 sunrise seminars, 2 satellite symposia, 44 oral communications and 127 posters. The social program included a very pleasant welcome reception at the Wiener Rathaus and a wonderful conference dinner held at the Palais Ferstel with outstanding Viennese musicians. We gratefully acknowledge the significant sponsorship provided by Elsevier and the Oxygen Club of California, as well as the additional sponsors of this meeting: Chanel, Tissuegnostics, Eucerin, Aposcience, Cayman, Baker, BMG Labtech, Shimadzu and the COST Action EpilipidNET CA19105.

The next 2024 Annual Meeting will be held on the 5th-7th  June in the very nice city of Istanbul with the theme "From Molecules to Tissues: Redox Biology in Action" (, and will be organized by Dr. Emrah Eroglu with the valuable assistance of Prof. Nesrin Kartal-Özer. There is still time to submit proposals and nominations for the Call for Symposia and Honorary Lectures for SFRR-E Istanbul 2024, which is closing soon on the 6th October 2023. Before this meeting, the Society for Free Radical Research International’s (SFRRI) 21st Biennial Congress will be held in conjunction with the Society for Redox Biology and Medicine’s (SfRBM) 30th Annual Conference in Punta del Este, Uruguay from November 15-18, 2023 ( These two meetings provide a great opportunity to address new exciting scientific challenges, with highly relevant updates on state-of-the-art research in the field.

We are also awaiting a very interesting series of SFRR-E webinars, organized by the ECR subcommittee, which is also very proactive in promoting additional activities, such as the mentoring program and a mini-symposium with flash talks from PhD students.

We would like to congratulate the recipients of the 2023 round of SFRR-E / Oxygen Club of California (OCC) Early Career Researcher (ECR) Fellowships: Sophie Hendrix, Hasselt University (Belgium); Verónica Miguel, Spanish National Centre for Cardiovascular Research; Anna Gioran, National Hellenic Research Foundation in Athens, Greece; and Pedro Gonzalez Menedez, University of Oviedo (Spain). Later on we plan to open the Call for 2024 SFRR-E/OCC ECR Fellowships.

Finally, I do hope that the wars in Ukraine and Middle East will be over soon, to allow all people to live safe and peacefully.

Looking forward to seeing you in Punta del Este in November 2023 and in Istanbul in June 2024.

With best wishes,
Juan Sastre
President SFRR-Europe

Why are there so few women in science?

Women researchers by country
Underrepresentation of women in STEM
Underrepresentation of women as Faculty Members
Journals invite less women to referee
Elite male faculty in life sciences employ fewer women


The Society for Free Radical Research - Europe (SFRR-E) is dedicated to promoting interest in all aspects of research related to Free Radicals in any scientific field.
