22 July 2022 Antioxidants Webinar | The Role of Peroxiredoxins in Antioxidant Defense and Redox Signaling


Peroxiredoxins are key players in antioxidant protection and redox signalling. Recent research has highlighted their roles in a wide range of physiological and pathological processes as diverse as tumor progression and resistance, metabolic rhythmicity, mitosis, spindle assembly, and DNA replication fidelity. However, numerous questions about their mechanisms of action and how these relate to structural features remain open. The webminars in this session, delivered by two leading researchers, will address novel exciting developments in two complementary areas of research on Peroxiredoxins: structural studies that yield insight on Peroxiredoxins’ kinetics and mode of action, and cellular studies that illuminate Peroxiredoxin’s functional roles in vivo.

The following experts will be present and talk:

  • Dr. Armindo José Alves da Silva Salvador, Center for Neuroscience and Cell Biology, University of Coimbra, Coimbra, Portugal
  • Prof. Dr. Bruce Morgan, Institute for Biochemistry, Saarland University, Saarbrücken, Germany
  • Dr. Sophie Rahuel-Clermont, IMoPA, Université de Lorraine, CNRS, Biopole, Campus Biologie Sante′, Nancy, France, UMS2008 IBSLor, Biophysics and Structural Biology Core Facility, Université de Lorraine, CNRS, INSERM, Biopole, Campus Biologie Sante′, Nancy, France

When? 22 July 2022 at 10:00 am CEST | 4:00 am EDT | 4:00 pm CST Asia

15–30 November 2022 The 26th International Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry


Dear Colleagues,

The Electronic Conferences on Synthetic Organic Chemistry (ECSOC) are a series of conferences that have been held online since 1997. Originally, it was an initiative of MDPI, and was later amalgamated with the University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain). It now constitutes the longest running electronic conference in the world. It maintains free participation and registration in the true spirit of open access on the World Wide Web. This year, the conference will cover a wide range of aspects involved in synthetic organic chemistry. A non-exhaustive list of topics that will be considered comprises:

  1. General Organic Synthesis;
  2. Bioorganic, Medicinal and Natural Products Chemistry;
  3. Microwave-Assisted Synthesis;
  4. Polymer and Supramolecular Chemistry;
  5. Computational Chemistry.

ECSOC-26 offers you the opportunity to participate in this international, scholarly conference without the need to travel. It will be completely free of charge—both to attend, and for scholars to upload and present their latest work on the conference platform. There will be a possibility to submit selected papers to the journal Molecules (ISSN 1420-3049, Impact Factor: 4.412 (2020); 5-Year Impact Factor: 4.588 (2020)).

Abstracts (in English) should be submitted by 30 September 2022 at Once this has been accepted, the author is requested to send the full manuscript, and optionally, a PowerPoint presentation (PDF only) and/or video of their work, before 23 October 2022, to ensure there is time for a final check.

The conference proceedings papers and presentations will be available on for discussion and will be published in the Journal Chemistry Proceedings for free. Once the conference is over, a CD-ROM (ISBN 978-3-0365-3286-8) will be published with the contents of the conference, which will be available on request ([email protected]) for 75 EUR each. 

Participants of this conference are cordially invited to contribute a full manuscript to our Special Issue of Molecules (submission to the journal is independent from the conference proceedings and will follow the usual process of the journal, including peer-review, APC, etc.). Papers presented at the conference will be granted a 20% discount for submisison to the Special Issue.

We are pleased to announce the availability of awards for researchers who plan to attend the ECSOC-26 conference. Applications and nominations will be assessed by the Scientific Committee. Winners will be announced online after the conference.

Best Contribution Award (CHF 500)

Best Contribution Award (CHF 500)
The Best Contribution Award is given for the proceedings judged to make the most significant contribution to the conference.

Best Presentation Award (CHF 500)

Best Presentation Award (CHF 500)
The Best Presentation Award is given for the posters/slide presentations and oral online presentations/video presentations judged to make the most significant contribution to the conference.

The 26th International Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry is organized and sponsored by MDPI, an open access publisher based in Switzerland. We hope you will be able to join this exciting event and support us in making it a success.

We look forward to receiving your research papers and welcoming you to this edition of the e-conference.

Please contact us if you have any questions ([email protected]).

Kind regards,
Dr. Julio A. Seijas Vázquez
Chair of the 26th Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry (ECSOC-26)
