CHEMBIORADICAL Scientific Context and Objectives


• More interdisciplinary collaboration between groups through inter-Working Group meetings;

• More detailed information on enzymes which exploit radical intermediates;

• Oxidative stress and the release of thiyl radicals;

• Biomarkers for oxidative stress (i.e. collagen);

• Antioxidant activities of natural products;

• DNA damage by free radicals: formation in cells and repair.

Results vs. Objectives

• Assembling Europe’s leading "Free Radical" scientists to tackle the problems associated with understanding free radical chemistry in living organisms.

• A single group can not achieve such goals due to the complexity of such systems. Only an interdiscplinary effort can provide the necessary knowledge.
