We are excited to announce that the 2024 SFRR-E annual meeting will focus on the theme "From Molecules to Tissues: Redox Biology in Action", and will be held from June 5-7, 2024, at the Movenpick Hotel in Kurtköy, Istanbul.


The importance of imaging tools in redox biology cannot be overstated - after all,

seeing is believing.

This year's meeting on redox biology and imaging will serve as a global platform for experts to discuss the latest breakthroughs in imaging techniques and redox tools and their applications in various biological systems. The event will encompass plenary lectures, symposia, and poster sessions covering a wide range of topics related to redox biology and imaging. Special sessions dedicated to young researchers and early career scientists will offer them a platform to showcase their research. Moreover, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in two dedicated satellite meetings: The satellite meeting at Uskudar University and another one the workshop at Labs@Location Center of Zeiss at Medipol University, which will provide hands-on experience with cutting-edge imaging technologies and tools. 

As always, we will ensure that the meeting is accompanied by social events allowing networking and collaboration in a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. We encourage you to take the time to explore Istanbul and all it has to offer, from its rich history and culture to its world-renowned cuisine.


In summary, the 2024 SFRR-E annual meeting promises to be exciting and informative, highlighting the importance of imaging tools in redox biology. We welcome you to Istanbul and the Movenpick Hotel in Kurtköy.


Yours sincerely,

Emrah Eroğlu (Chair) & Nesrin Kartal Özer (Honorary Chair)
