Since then, every year an Italian meeting on ADP-ribosylation processes is organized,  involving a still increasing number of scientists and representing a good opportunity to discuss the results of the research and to establish fruitful collaborations.

Professor Suzuki was the first coordinator of the group in 1987-1988, followed by Professor Benedetta Farina (University of Naples “Federico II”) from 1989 to 2007, Professor Paola Caiafa (“Sapienza” University of Rome) from 2008 to 2010, Professor Ivana Scovassi (IGM-CNR, Pavia) from 2011 to 2013.
