Post-congress message of Martin Wehling
Founder of the RRSH Conferences
The 13th International Meeting on the Rapid Responses to Steroid Hormones (RRSH 2022) will be held from Tuesday, September 20, to Friday, September 23, 2022 at the Sorbonne, Paris (France). The meeting will be chaired by Yves Jacquot (University of Paris) and co-chaired by Matthias Barton (University of Zürich).
RRSH is an international biomedical conference organized by the International Committee on Rapid Responses to Steroid Hormones (ICRRSH) that explores, presents, and discusses advances in steroid hormone functions in biology and medicine. Steroid research in biology, chemistry, pharmacology, medicine, oncology, and endocrinology, concerning both rapid and long-term effects of steroids will be presented.
This meeting marks the 25th anniversary of the conference which will be celebrated with a special gala evening at the Musée d’Orsay on the Left Bank of the River Seine.
SCOPE & TOPICS
The aim of the RRSH 2022 meeting is to present and discuss advances in steroid hormone action in biology and medicine, and exploring its role in biology, chemistry, pharmacology, oncology and endocrinology. A special session will be dedicated to the role of steroids in the pathophysiology and treatment of COVID-19. The conference will feature three Keynote Lectures by international experts. The conference proceedings of the meeting will be published in the international journal Steroids. Sessions will cover (but are not limited to) the following major topics:
1. Oncology and Cancer Biology
2. Steroids in Neuroprotection
3. Molecular Pharmacology of Steroid Receptors
4. New Roles of GPCRs in Steroid Signaling
5. Vitamin D Receptor and Glucocorticoid Receptor
6. Mineralocorticoid Receptor in Health and Disease
7. Novel Rapid Effects of Steroid Receptors
The RRSH 2022 meeting brings together world-leading scientists, researchers, and physicians, distinguished experts, experienced researchers, post-doctoral researchers and young students working in various areas of steroid research and medicine from all over the world. The objective of RRSH 2022 is to report, present, and dicuss scientific and medical advances in the fields described above. This event also offers the opportunity for companies, institutions, and agencies active in the field to sponsor the meeting. The organisers encourage these organisations to present innovative technologies and advances in drug development, medicines and therapeutics relevant to steroid research, and to exhibit in these areas.

The history of the conference was reviewed in a recent article summarizing the most recent RRSH meeting held jointly with the Federation of the American Societies of experimental Biology (FASEB). The previous RRSH meeting was supported by numerous societies in biology, oncology, and endocrinology, world renowned journals and publishers, as well as the National Institutes of Health and the National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, U.S.A.
The organizers would like to take this opportunity to warmly thank all the previous and present supporters and sponsors of the RRSH conferences who maintained their support despite the COVID-19 pandemic. Without their confidence and continued support the RRSH 2022 meeting might have been cancelled or again postponed.
The RRSH 2022 Conference Chairs and the Members of the Local Organizing Committee are indebted to Professor Jean-Louis Beaudeux, Dean of the Faculty of Pharmacy of the University of Paris and President of the Académie Nationale de Pharmacie, for his support of this event and for giving us the honour of welcoming the conference attendees in the Hall d’Honneur of the Faculty of Pharmacy for the Welcome Reception on September 20, 2022.
