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, 19-21 May 2022.
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.
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.
We are happy to announce a special opportunity for early career scientists to actively engage in the scientific program and present their results before the distinguished audience of the conference. We as organizers consider it particularly important to promote and encourage young scientists (PhD and Post-doc level, under the age of 35) to enrich the development of the field by their insights.
The best presentations in the PhD student and young investigator categories will be awarded by valuable prizes. Naturally, the poster sections are invariably open to applicants who wish to present in this form.
