6–9 September 2022 The 4th ISFMS: Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Druggability of Proteins
We would like to invite you to The 4th ISFMS: Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Druggability of Proteins, which will be held in the wonderful city of Florence, Italy, in the period September 6-9, 2022. The conference will be hosted at the University of Florence, in the biomedical campus nearby the main city hospital, which is easily accessible from the airport, train station or city center. Apart the high quality science which will be presented during the event, our fantastic location will afford the possibility to visit the city in which Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Galileo Galilei (to mention just a few personalities) lived and created some of their unique artistic and scientific masterpieces. The friendly and peaceful atmosphere of our city will surely favor nice scientific interactions and the possibility to establish interesting contacts with scientists from all over the world in a collaborative manner.
1–14 September 2021 1st International Electronic Conference on Molecular Sciences: Druggable Targets of Emerging Infectious Diseases (ECMS2021)
We are pleased to announce that the 1st International Electronic Conference on Molecular Sciences: Druggable Targets of Emerging Infectious Diseases (ECMS2021), chaired by Prof. Dr. Claudiu T. Supuran, Dr. Clemente Capasso, Prof. Dr. Paola Gratteri, and Prof. Dr. Silvia Selleri, will be held on https://sciforum.net/conference/ECMS2021 from 1 to 14 September 2021.
The new and re-emerging infectious diseases caused by viruses and resistant bacteria represent a growing global health risk across public health concerns. The characterization of pathogen biology, pathogenesis, and host response genomic pathways across multiple infectious agents offers the possibility to find new targets of interventions (e.g., crucial enzymes), which could serve as broad-spectrum drug targets.
We proudly invite the global community of scholars to join ECMS 2021 to present their latest research on infectious diseases, including biological, pathological, clinical aspects and pharmacological targets, and so on. Thanks to the flexibility of our innovative electronic platform, you are welcome to upload and present your work and to attend the conference completely free of charge. We are also considering creating a Special Issue for selected conference papers in our journal International Journal of Molecular Sciences (ISSN 1422-0067, IF 4.556, https://0-www-mdpi-com.brum.beds.ac.uk/journal/ijms/special_issues/ECIJMS2021). Papers published in the Special Issue, if one does get created, would receive a 20% discount on the Article Processing Charge.
We hope you will be able to join this exciting event. For more details, please click
23–25 March 2022 The first International Conference on Antioxidants: Sources, Methods, Health Benefits, and Industrial Applications—ICA 2022
We are pleased to announce the first International Conference on Antioxidants: Sources, Methods, Health Benefits, and Industrial Applications.
The conference is organized by the MDPI open access journal Antioxidants (Impact Factor 5.014) and will be held as a three-day event in Barcelona, Spain, 23–25 March 2022.
Antioxidants represent a huge area of investigation for researchers from many disciplines, and their importance in a variety of fields from health to food to innovative materials is increasingly appreciated.
Despite the enormous amount of research work related to this issue, our knowledge needs to be improved on the mechanism of action, the bioaccesibility and bioavailability of dietary antioxidants, oxidative stress and antioxidant defence systems, antioxidant-based therapeutic strategies, antioxidant functional food, and the design of biomaterials with antioxidant properties for use in biomedical applications or functional packaging. We have to continue pursuing the search for new natural sources of antioxidants while shifting toward sustainable methodologies for their extraction, and, finally, we need to standardize and validate the methods for their analysis and for evaluating and ranking the antioxidant power.
The main topics and sessions of the conference will cover:
Health Outcomes of Antioxidants and Oxidative Stress with special emphasis on: cancer, cardiovascular diseases, microbiome and gut health, metabolic disorders, neurodegenerative pathologies, cognitive function and sports
Antioxidant Enzyme Systems with special emphasis on: ROS, RNS, and RSS; mitochondria; redox signaling; photooxidative stress
Natural and Synthetic Antioxidants with special emphasis on: occurrence, preparation methods, mechanisms of action, evaluation/measurement methodologies, green extraction procedures
Industrial Applications with special emphasis on: biomaterials, functional packaging, biomedical devices
The conference will host a number of internationally renowned speakers and invites submissions for oral presentations and posters. We wish the meeting may offer a unique opportunity for direct communication between scholars, favoring personal contacts between younger and experienced researchers on advanced research topics and technological issues.
We look forward to seeing you at this exciting meeting in Barcelona.

15–30 July 2021 The 2nd International Electronic Conference on Brain Sciences (IECBS 2021)
You are cordially invited to participate in the 2nd International Electronic Conference on Brain Sciences. This event aims to bring together researchers working in the field of neuroscience, to present and discuss their recent contributions, without the need for travel. During this e-conference, a live session will also be held on 15th of July 2021.
The field of neuroscience is one of the last frontiers in biomedical studies, as many of the details that control brain function are still not well understood. This makes the study of the nervous system very exciting and fast moving. This conference will address a variety of research topics, which reflect some of the current areas of focus. These are organized into seven sessions, and include:
- Clinical Neuroscience
- Cognitive Neuroscience
- Systems Neuroscience
- Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience
- Developmental Neuroscience
- Behavioral Neuroscience
- Environmental Neuroscience
Accepted abstract submissions will be published in the proceedings of the conference, and authors are invited to elaborate their abstracts into full manuscripts that will be considered for publication in Brain Sciences, with a 20% discount on the APC. Brain Sciences is an open access journal from MDPI, in the field of neuroscience. The journal is indexed in the Sciences Citation Indexing Expended (SCIE IF=3.332), Scopus, and other databases. Citations are available in PubMed; full-text archived in PubMed Central (PMC). Please visit the following website for more information.
• Abstract Submission: 10 April 2021
• Notification of Acceptance: 20 April 2021
• Submission of Full Manuscript to Brain Sciences: 1 June 2021
