Society for Free Radical Research - Europe

SFRR-E ECR Subcommittee



Description and Mission Statement

In 2021, the Society for Free Radical Research - Europe (SFRR-E) founded the Early Career Researcher Subcommittee (ECR Subcommittee) to encourage an active participation of early-career investigators in various activities of the Society. ECR Subcommittee currently consists of 8 SFRR-E members under the age of 40 or less than 10 years after obtaining a Ph.D. 

The subcommittee aims to create a vibrant ECR community within the SFRR-E devoted to young investigators' education, visibility, and mobility. Building upon the core values of SFRR-E, the ECR Subcommittee aims to promote new ECR memberships and increase SFRR-E presence on social media platforms. 

To support training and education in redox research, the ECR Subcommittee will organize topic-specific seminar series, courses, and workshops aimed at young investigators to facilitate the dissemination of ideas, recent scientific discoveries, methodological breakthroughs, and technological advancements. In addition, the ECR Subcommittee will aim to bring together early-career and experienced investigators to provide guidance and support to the next generation of redox scientists. 

To increase the visibility of young investigators and promote research output, the ECR Subcommittee will create opportunities for science communication at the SFRR-E Annual Meetings, Summer Schools, Workshops, and Seminar Series through poster and oral communications, open discussions, and round tables. 

Additionally, the ECR Subcommittee will create open spaces and organize social events to stimulate networking, collaboration, exchange, and mentoring opportunities between young investigators and experts from different fields of redox research.
We are pleased to announce the recipients of the inaugural round of SFRR-E / Oxygen Club of California (OCC) Early Career Researcher (ECR) Fellowships.
