Welcome to the fourth BenBedPhar Scientific meeting entitled „ From Physiology to Pathology “. The  focus of this meeting is to facilitate the transfer of NRF2 research from basic science to practical  applications. NRF2, a transcription factor, has been found to have broad protective effects against  various pathological mechanisms, including chronic inflammation, metabolic changes, and oxidative stress. Evidence from animal studies, clinical trials, and systems medicine analyses suggests that
NRF2 activity is altered in many chronic conditions such as cancer, autoimmune diseases, cardiovascular disease, metabolic diseases, and neurodegenerative diseases. The aim of this meeting is to explore the complexities of the NRF2 pathway and how it can be targeted for therapeutic purposes. By sharing the latest findings and discussing innovative approaches, we hope to progress
towards effective NRF2-based treatments for chronic diseases.

The scientific meeting promises to be a productive and enlightening event, with a diverse range of presentations from leading experts and emerging scientists in the field of NRF2 research. The twenty-seven thought-provoking lectures and seven informative posters will provide valuable insights into the latest developments in the field and foster new ideas for future research.

This meeting offers a unique opportunity for attendees to learn from, and engage with, some of the foremost authorities in the field of NRF2 research.
