„From basic science to clinical translation" is this years’ title of the Annual Scientific Conference 2019 of the European Tissue Repair Society (ETRS), organized by Helmholtz Zentrum München and ETRS. Leading scientists and clinicians in the field of fibrosis, wound healing, tissue repair, stem cells, and regeneration guarantee high-class translational science.
Part of the Organizing Committee is Dr. Yuval Rinkevich, DZL-PI and Head of the Research Group “Cellular Therapeutics in Chronic Lung Disease” at the CPC-M. His lab wishes to identify fundamental cellular and molecular principles of tissue/organ regeneration and to develop a knowledge basis for therapeutic strategies in clinical use. He is elected ETRS board member since 2018.
The venue couldn't be located better in Munich: The „Isarforum” is a perfect place next to the river banks and on the bridge crossing the river Isar. It is in walking distance to all selected hotels and close vicinity to the city center.
The aim of the meeting is to promote knowledge, sharing and networking amongst scientists, healthcare professionals and industry, all with an interest in wound healing and tissue repair. At the same time, the major current clinical challenges of the twentieth century in wound care will be highlighted.
Speakers are (among others):
Professor Irving Weissman MD (Stanford)
Boris Hinz Dip. Biol., PhD (Toronto)
Christina Scheel MD (Munich)
Neil Henderson BSc (Hons), MBChB, PhD (Edinburgh)
Professor Peter Friedl MD PhD (Netherlands)
Professor Paul Martin BSc, PhD. (Bristol)
Professor Sabine Werner PhD (Zurich)
Special notice to young investigators: There will be a pre-conference workshop at the CPC, Max Lebsche Platz, providing great opportunity to enhance and strengthen your research skills and career prospects; with lots of time for networking and exchanging ideas with other early career researchers.
