Annual Meetings

SFRBM is currently planning its 22nd Annual Meeting for November 18-22, 2015 at the Westin Waterfront Hotel in Boston, MA. The format of the Annual Meeting includes general plenary sessions, oral presentations of selected abstracts, poster symposia, awards for outstanding poster presentations, topical workshops, instructional luncheons and networking receptions. The last annual meeting, titled SFRBM 2014, attracted 500 scientists, researchers and clinicians to San Antonio for five days of exciting scientific presentations. Members receive significant registration discounts to the Annual Meeting (from $75 - $225). As members of SFRR International, all SFRBM members also enjoy access (at reduced member rates) to SFRR International meetings around the world, including the Biennial General Meeting.

This is the best forum to know about the latest developments in the field of free radical biology.
Arunabh Bhattacharya, Asst Professor, Univ. of Texas HSC – San Antonio

Keeps me up to date on latest research in the field.
Stephen Black, Professor, Georgia Health Sciences Univ.

The field of redox biology is continually expanding and I find this to be the best meeting to learn of new advances and cutting-edge technology.
Margaret Briehl, Ph.D., Professor, The University of Arizona

We not only get new ideas for our research programs, but get to talk directly with so many with ideas that can help us.
Garry Buettner, Professor, The University of Iowa

The SFRBM meetings remind me of the breadth of the field and give me an opportunity to learn something in areas in which I'm not personally involved.
Marilyn Ehrenshaft, Investigator, NIEHS/NIH

I think the poster sessions as the best of any conference I usually attend - they are well attended and usually a very good forum for discussion, particularly for younger scientists.
Clare Hawkins, Assistant Professor, Heart Research Institute

This is very generous and interactive group, and the numerous opportunities to talk promote the exchange of ideas. I also think people are very good about exchanging reagents and methods.
Nicholas Heintz, Ph.D., Professor, University of Vermont

This meeting is relaxed and informative providing an environment rich in discussion and interaction. Networking is easy and everyone is interested in the science.
Donald McCarthy, Graduate Student, University of Albany

I always come back with valuable info to plug into my research program.
Andres Melendez, Professor, University of Albany

SFRBM is a great place to meet new people in your field. As well, it enables fruitful co-operations for future research. This is a place, where you can present your poster and at the same through the active discussion during this presentation form collaborations for the lab.
Yuliya Mikhed, Student, Johannes Gutenberg University, GERMANY

Every year I learn something new. Every year I come back with a list of new experiments I want to run. Every year there is a figure in my poster that represents an experiment suggested or that spawned from the previous year's conference. The social time spent with other researchers help build future collaborations and pick great minds for ideas. This year I came back with a very solid possible collaboration.
Edward Moreira, Ph.D., Postdoc, Northwestern University

For me, it's the quality of the science presented that counts.
David Ross, Professor, University of Colorado - Denver

The number of attendees at the SFRBM meeting is neither too large nor too small. This affords the opportunity to interact with attendees from a variety of research interests and at the same time maintaining focus on the overall underlying scope of the society.
Alba Rossi-George, Research Associate, Rutgers University

A beautiful opportunity to learn new ideas and exchange scientific views in formal and informal ways. Also a good chance to initiate collaborative projects.
Victor Sharov, Assistant Research Professor, University of Kansas

I have certainly learned a lot especially since I am relatively new in the field. I found the Sunrise school especially informative, providing a backbone for understanding the field.
Aaron Sverdlov, MD, Ph.D., Postdoc, Boston University
