It is our great honor and pleasure to invite you to Siena, Italy from June 17-19, 2022 to join the “The Future of Redox Biology” meeting . The aim of this meeting will be to inspire the new and young generation of scientists in the field of Redox Biology to share and transmit to them our passion in science and, at the same time, to get fresh and new perspectives from their ideas. For this reason, the majority of the talks will be represented by young scientists including chair sessions and round tables. This meeting will represent a unique opportunity for advancing scientific interactions between academics, researchers and clinicians in Redox Biology to further develop this exciting field.
This event will be held in a glamorous historical venue, Teatro dei Rinnovati, situated on the most famous square of Siena, Piazza del Campo, where the famous medieval horse race (Palio) is performed twice a year. The piazza is the beating heart of the city and dates back before the thirteenth century.

A unique work of art, which has no comparison in our western world … one complete animal, with head, heart, arteries, legs, of which remains the almost intact skeleton, deposited on three hills.
