The International Society for the Development of Research on Magnesium (SDRM) is a non-profit organisation. The purpose of the Society is to promote magnesium research in all branches of life science and medicine by increasing the collaboration, diffusion and exchange of information. SDRM holds international scientific meetings and supports the publication and presentation of scientific results.

"Magnesium Research " is the official scientific JOURNAL of the Society:

SDRM was founded in the ‘70s in Paris by a group of medical doctors under the leadership...(Read More)

Highlights on Magnesium Publications: TRPM7 promotes the metastatic process in human nasopharyngeal carcinoma *** Magnesium in Man: Implications for Health and Disease *** The claudin-16 channel gene is transcriptionally inhibited by 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin *** Antidepressant-like activity of magnesium in the olfactory bulbectomy model is associated with the AMPA/BDNF pathway *** Angiotensin II prevents calcification in vascular smooth muscle cells by enhancing magnesium influx *** By suppressing the expression of anterior pharynx-defective-1a and -1ß and inhibiting the aggregation of ß-amyloid protein, magnesium ions inhibit the cognitive decline of amyloid precursor protein/presenilin 1 transgenic mice

Dear Readers,

we are approaching the XIV International Magnesium Symposium in Rome, June 23-24

Do not miss this event, you will have the opportunity to meet with key opinion leaders in:

- molecular mechanisms of magnesium regulation in various diseases,

- effects of magnesium intake on disease risk,

- clinical facts in magnesium supplementation.

And we will listen to some exciting  “breaking news” on cell magnesium homeostasis.

We invite you to visit the Congress website where you will find detailed information about the scientific expertise of invited speakers and anticipations of their talks (click on speaker's name).

We are proud to say this is a comprehensive and crossover symposium on Magnesium. 

Join us and share our common interests in the many fields of Magnesium research. You will enjoy science in the glamorous venue of Villa Malta, just a few minutes from the Spanish Steps and other gorgeous locations that only Roma “caput mundi”, can offer. 

We look forward to welcoming  you in Rome.
