CoEHAR presented the results of the Replica project during Experimental Biology 2022, the annual meeting that brings together thousands of scientists and experts in the field of anatomy, biochemistry and molecular biology, investigative pathology, pharmacology, and physiology. Representing CoEHAR, the researcher Alfio Distefano, PhD student in neuroscience at the University of Catania
With thousands of attendees each year, Experimental Biology is the ideal venue for researchers of all career levels to present their research and network with their colleagues from all over the world.
Organized by five different scientific societies, the meeting will be held April 2–5 in Philadelphia and will host thousands of scientists and 25 guest societies in one interdisciplinary community.
The aim of the event is to create an international network of experts and to disseminate the right scientific information in anatomy, biochemistry and molecular biology, investigative pathology, pharmacology, and physiology.
The CoEHAR presence at the meeting highlights the overall impact of the studies carried out by the research center of Catania. Focus of the presentation, the latest results obtained by the Replica project, an international research group which independently relocated three relevant studies in the cytotoxicity and inflammation induced by cigarette smoke and ENDs aerosol.
According to the researcher Alfio Distefano, data “confirm the significance of the network of scientists who actively collaborate to provide public health bodies with reliable data on ecigs and heated tobacco products. The results of the Replica project will not only help the institutions to adopt different guidelines on electronic cigarettes, but also confirm the high level of quality achieved by CoEHAR. We have created new research standards and the results are tangible”.
The conference, which will end on April 5, is organized thanks to the efforts of five different scientific societies: American Association for Anatomy (AAA), American physiological society (APS), American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB), American Society for Investigative Pathology (ASIP) e American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics (ASPET).
