Dear Colleagues and Friends,
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is a pleasure to invite you to the 4th FEBS Advanced Lecture Course on Matrix Pathobiology, Signaling and Molecular Targets (4th FEBS-MPST 2013), which follows the previous successful FEBS-MPST 2011, 2009 and 2007 meetings.
Matrix Biology is a fast growing field with significant impact in all areas of Biosciences. Based on the great advances that have occurred during the last years in the field of matrix pathobiology and the increasing research interest on matrix organization and the matrix-mediated regulation of the various cell functions, the FEBS-MPST 2013 will offer oral sessions with invited plenary lectures, general lectures and tutorials, selected talks related to the topics of the presented abstracts, participant poster presentations, panel discussions and speakersʼ corner. These sessions will address both basic and applied science topics that appeal to the range of participants working in the fields of Matrix Biology, Glycobiology, Biochemistry, Structural Biology, Cell and Molecular Biology, Pharmacology, Biotechnology and Medicine.
The organizing committee has put together an outstanding group of internationally recognized speakers. The lectures and tutorials will provide you with an update of important new knowledge covering key areas of the field.
The most important goal of the FEBS-MPST 2013 meeting is to bring together scientists from life sciences on an important and rapidly developing scientific field and to create the environment for a superb science, warm collegiality, and an all-around rewarding experience during this special time of year.
We are looking forward to welcome you in Greece for an exciting and memorable scientific meeting.
Chairman of the Organizing Committee
