ASPET’s President, Dr. Wayne Backes has collaborated with APS’s President, Dr. Meredith Hay, to bring us a workshop and three symposia on inflammation and oxidative stress.

This workshop will provide information to help scientists who may not be as familiar with the newer genetic techniques to learn how these methodologies can be used for their research.
