The Annual Meeting of the German Society for Matrix Biology
Frontiers in Matrix Biology

This year the Annual Meeting of the German Society for Matrix Biology will be held in Cologne in cooperation with the CRC 829 and the Center for Molecular Medicine Cologne.

The organizers are looking forward to an excellent program with leading international experts working to share and discuss latest advances in the fields of matrix biology.

The program for download

This year: a new format to especially promote the research of young scientists.

At this conference for the first time, the organizers will initiate a Junior Scientist Session preceding the annual congress 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.
