‘Oxidized protein homeostasis: Implications of oxidative stress, circadian rhythms and ageing.’ The major focus of his group is to elucidate the role of protein oxidative modifications and oxidized protein degradation in cellular ageing and human premature ageing syndromes. He has coordinated the Shared Cost Action Project on "The role of proteasome in human ageing" under the EU Framework Programme 5. He was also a partner of several cross-national EU Projects including Zinc Age, Proteome Age, MarkAge and MyoAge. Currently, he is a partner of the INSERM Cross-Cutting Program on Ageing and the Fondation Leducq Transatlantic Network on Redox regulation of cardiomyocyte renewal. He has published >150 papers and is an inventor of 6 patents. He is a member of the editorial boards of FRBM and Redox Biology and several scientific societies on redox biology including SFRBM, ASBMB, SFRR-Europe.

His talk will focus on the recent developments in oxidized protein homeostasis, including implications of oxidative stress, circadian rhythms and ageing.
