posticon Symposia


The 6th FEBS-MPST 2017 Advanced Lecture Course includes General Lectures / Tutorials (Extracellular Matrix, Proteoglycans, Glycosaminoglycans, Metalloproteinases, Cell Surface Receptors, Collagens) and a Career development session to be held during the first day. Furthermore, eight Plenary Symposia will each be introduced and moderated by leading scientists acting as discussion leaders. An introduction to the topic of each particular symposium will be given by the chairperson.

Symposium 2: Metalloproteinases & Matrix as a dynamic structural network (Chair: Irit Sagi)

Symposium 3: Matrix Pathobiology (Chair: Renato Iozzo)

Symposium 4: Interactions and functions of matrix macromolecules (Chair: Ralph Sanderson)

Symposium 5: Glycobiology and Metabolic Regulation of ECM molecules (Chair: Alberto Passi)

Symposium 6: ECM networks & ECM-based nanotechnology (Chair: Sylvie Ricard-Blum)

Symposium 7: Signaling and Disease Molecular Targeting (Chair: Martin Gotte)

Symposium 8: Matrix regulation in health and disease (Chair: Raymond Boot-Handford)
