Free radicals present at the 26th annual SFRRA meeting

Monday 17 December 2018 4:18pm

Staff and students from the Centre for Free Radical Research traveled to Auckland last week to present at the Reactive Oxidants in Health and Disease – 26th Annual Meeting of the Society for Free Radical Research Australasia.

Postgraduate students Bee Bathish, Sarah Heath, Chris Kaldor and Jesse Fischer all received SFRRA Travel Awards. Jesse Fischer was also the recipient of a Conference Bursary Award, along with Master’s student Reuben Springer.

Oral presentations

  • Professor Mark Hampton - Oxidative inactivation of caspase-8 enabled initiation of TNF-mediated necroptosis
  • Professor Christine Winterbourn - Bicarbonate: A possible player in redox regulation
  • Dr Louisa Ashby - Detection of hypochlorous acid in neutrophil phagosomes with probe R19S: a chlorinated products and real-time fluorescence

Oral and poster presentations

  • Dr Martina Paumann-Page - Peroxidasin, a newly identified peroxidase, and is role in metastatic melanoma
  • Reuben Springer - Staphylococcus aureus survival inside the neutrophil phagosome
  • Jesse Fischer - Peroxiredoxins as markers of oxidative stress: potential predictors of response to radiotherapy for rectal cancer?

Poster presentations

  • Professor Mark Hampton - Peroxiredoxin interaction with the cytoskeletal-regulatory protein CRMP2: investigations of a putative redox relay
  • Dr Nick Magon - Protein carbonyls as a marker of oxidative stress in human plasma
  • Bee Bathish - Peroxidasin-catalysed oxidative modifications of proteins in the extracellular matrix
  • Sarah Heath - Intracellular redox changes during TNF-mediated necroptosis
  • Chris Kaldor - Oxidant production by Streptococcus pneumoniae associated with neutrophil extracellular traps
  • Jeffry Tang - Blueberry-derived phenolic acids alleviate inflammation-driven monocyte adhesion to vascular endothelial cells
