Welcome to the OCC Homepage

OCC is a scientific organization dedicated to enhancing interactions and providing meetings and discussion forums worldwide to those interested in free radicals in biological systems, oxidants and antioxidants in biology and medicine, micronutrients, nutrition and health.

In this web site are listed the current officers of the OCC, a brief history, a complete list of upcoming meetings organized or co-sponsored by the OCC. Also included is a collection of downloadable abstracts in PDF format (some in HTML) from our past meetings.

Finally, there is an up-to-date compendium of links to other websites that could be useful to your research or professional interest.

We encourage current and prospective OCC members to provide announcements of meetings, journals, websites, or other information to publish on our site.

OCC Mission

The OCC seeks to promote scientific interactions to improve the understanding of the roles of micronutrients in oxygen biology and medicine as they pertain to redox and energy metabolism, cell signaling and transcription, and epigenetics. An ultimate goal is to translate these findings to benefit human life- and health-span. OCC sponsors are from industrial organizations, health and medical foundations, government, and academia. We are also cosponsored by the Linus Pauling Institute. With this wide support, conference organizers bring together the world's best researchers to address current scientific issues. The OCC provides a forum -in the form of prizes and awards- for the recognition of scientific achievements by both promising scholars and established investigators.

Dear colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the joint OCC2017 World Congress and the SFRR-Europe 2017 Annual Conference.

Both events, the annual meeting of the SFRR-Europe and the OCC World Congress, have a long lasting history. Some OCC events have been hosted already in Europe. For the first time, both events will be merged ensuring a high quality and first-rate scientific program with the participation of renowned scientists from around the world.

This conference focuses on Metabolic Stress and Redox Regulation. The topics of this three-day long event will cover some of the most pressing issues of today’s society. Therefore, we invite all scientists to submit abstracts and present their work during the meeting.

The conference will be held in the Radisson Blu Hotel in the center of Berlin, walking distance to the famous Museum Island with the Pergamon Altar, the Alexanderplatz, and the world famous boulevard Unter den Linden leading to the Brandenburg Gate.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Berlin in June 2017.
