Klenk Symposium Cologne 2017

Klenk Symposium 2017

It has been our great pleasure to welcome over 370 participants from over 24 countries to the 33rd Ernst Klenk Symposium in Molecular Medicine 2017 on "Tissue regeneration, wound healing and fibrosis: Translating basic concepts into regenerative therapy".

We received excellent feedback from the participants regarding this years' program and the guest speakers' contribution commenting: “The talks of the guest speakers were top quality presenting interesting and novel insights into the various aspects of tissue regeneration, wound healing and fibrosis. The Klenk Symposium was one of the most exciting meetings in the field of tissue repair and regeneration in 2017”.

We would like to thank once again all guest speakers for their participation. It was a great honor and pleasure for us that you accepted our invitation.

CMMC Klenk Poster Award 2017

During the poster presentation over 70 posters were presented (Program-Poster Abstract Book_Klenk 2017).
