• Annual Meeting

    2018

    2018 Annual Meeting will be held on together with the German Society for Matrix Biology

    March 22-24th 2018 in Stuttgart

    Pre-Conference Young Investigator Session March 21st-22nd 2018

    At this conference we will have a Young Investigator Session to create a unique forum for young scientists to present and exchange new data. These sessions will bring together young European researchers in order to promote interactions between pre- and post-doctoral scientists, so they can benefit from the different experiences that the sessions and the subsequent conference offer.

    2017

    This years Annual Meeting will be held on February 15th 2017 in Bern.
     
    Registration is free of charge
     
    (Registration is closed)
     
    Location: Institut für Anatomie, Uni Bern, Ewald Weibel Hörsaal.
     
    How to get there:
    • Go to the main entrance of the old building of the Institut of Anatomy (Bühlstrasse 26, not Baltzerstrasse 2)
    • Walk straight into the building and you are walking directly to the Ewald Weibel Hörsaal

     

    It is our great pleasure to have two outstanding researchers in the field of matrix biology as keynote speakers:

    Matthias Chiquet (Uni Bern) and Viola Vogel (ETH Zurich).

    Moreover, we excited about the line-up of great short talks (12min talk + 3min Q&A)
