It has been a privilege for me to organize the “4th International Conference
on the Biology of Hydrogen Sulfide”. The last three Conferences were
held in Shanghai, Atlanta and Kyoto with considerable success. I hope to
keep up with this tradition making the 2016 conference an exciting forum for
information exchange, debate and collaboration on H2S research.
As we all know, the field of H2S is growing rapidly and this meeting has
always been an important opportunity to meet and keep us all updated with
the new developments in the basic and translational efforts in the field.
The scientific program features a variety of topics related to chemistry,
physiology, pathophysiology and pharmacology of H2S, including a session
on translational aspects of H2S biology.
A specific effort has been made in order to promote the participation of
young scientists, PhD and Post-doc. The abstract selected will be presented
as oral communication and a special section has been dedicated to young scientists
in collaboration with the “European Network on Gasotransmitters”.
I welcome you in Naples and I hope you will enjoy the meeting and the
With warm regards,
Prof. Giuseppe Cirino
President of the Meeting
