The Oxygen Society clubs like Oxygen club of California (OCC) & Internatinal society on Oxygen transport to tissue (ISOTT) are present.
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.
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.
The International Society on Oxygen Transport to Tissue is an interdisciplinary society comprising about 250 members worldwide. Its purpose is to further the understanding of all aspects of the processes involved in the transport of oxygen from the air to its ultimate consumption in the cells of the various organs of the body.
The annual meeting brings together scientists, engineers, clinicians and mathematicians in a unique international forum for the exchange of information and knowledge, the updating of participants on latest developments and techniques, and the discussion of controversial issues within the field of oxygen transport to tissue.
ISOTT was founded in 1973 which has been the leading platform for the presentation of many of the technological and conceptual developments within the field both at the meetings themselves and in the proceedings of the society. These have been published by Kluwer Academic/Plenum Publishers in its Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology series and lately by Springer.
Examples of areas in which members have made highly significant contributions include electrode techniques, spectrophotometric methods, mathematical modeling of oxygen transport, the understanding of local regulation of oxygen supply to tissue and fluorocarbons/blood substitutes.Read More»
