Dear colleagues and guests,
It is my great pleasure to invite scientists, academicians, young researchers, and students from all over the world to attend the 6th World Congress on Hydrogen Sulfide in Biology & Medicine, which will be held in Budapest, Hungary, from May 28-30, 2020.
Following the traditions of our previous conferences, which were held in Shanghai, Atlanta, Kyoto, Naples and Toronto, the Budapest meeting is expected to bring together a multi-disciplinary group of scientists from 5 continents to exchange break-through ideas and provide novel insights in the chemical biology and therapeutic applications of hydrogen-sulfide (H2S) and related sulfur species.
Our sessions traditionally cover a wide variety of research areas from chemistry and basic molecular mechanisms to (patho)physiology, pharmacology and potential therapeutic exploitation of H2S, including in cancer, cardiovascular, CNS, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, renal and genitourinary diseases.
Our honorary scientific president, Nobel Laureate Prof Louis Ignarro, and the distinguished professors in our international scientific advisory board should guarantee an excellent professional program with great scientists from different countries around the world, who are expected to share their latest and most exciting results with the audience.
The scientific program will foster discussions and expected to inspire participants to initiate collaborations within and across disciplines for the advancement of our field. Special emphasis will be devoted to promote the active participation of young scientists at the PhD student and Post-doc level in all these endeavors.
