About the school

This ECMatrix summer school aims to bring together key opinion leaders with a focus on giving in-depth insights into current innovations and translational directions of the extracellular matrix research.

We have selected four main established and emerging areas of investigation that we believe will shape the future of ECM biology field (namely mechano-, immuno-, regenerative, and responsive-matrix). The scientific program is geared towards an interdisciplinary audience from life sciences, chemistry, engineering and clinical medicine.

Additionally, workshops on professional skills (e.g. scientific publishing) and industrial networking are planned. Participants will have the chance to present their research during a 3-minute flash talk and/or a poster session.  Several social activities in are organized to facilitate communication and networking between the participants!
