Roxane Prieux (ESR2) has attended the SFRR-E annual meeting about "Redox homeostasis - From Signaling to Damage" that took place in Ferrara, Italy, from 19th to 21st of June 2019.
This three-day meeting was the opportunity for advancing scientific interactions between academics, researchers and clinicians in the area of Redox Biology. Several topics were covered such as the involvement of oxidative stress in health and diseases, the role of nutrition and lifestyle and how the modulation of those processes impacts health. A special focus on the redox-regulated signaling pathway and the double sword effect of redox mediators in physiological and /or pathological signaling was presented.
During the meeting, Roxane had the opportunity to present her latest results on the impact of cigarette smoke on skin via a poster entitled: "A simple and modulable reconstructed human epidermis as a tool to assess the effect of external aggressors".
