Muscle Development, Regeneration and Disease 2018

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

This meeting will cover the latest findings in skeletal muscle in development, regeneration and disease. It will include presentations on embryonic and postnatal development, regeneration, cell-cell interaction, transcriptional and epigenetic control mechanisms during myogenesis and muscle regeneration, as well as new mechanisms of disease and therapeutic approaches.

The conference will bring together internationally recognized leaders in their fields and is aimed at fostering scientific exchange between participants by providing ample time for discussions.

We warmly invite you to join us in Berlin and eagerly look forward to your participation.

Yours,
Carmen Birchmeier and Simone Spuler
