  3. Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. 

However, delegates involved in the following research areas are strongly encouraged to submit abstracts to our general sessions:

  • Developmental biology;
  • Extracellular matrix synthesis and degradation;
  • Glycobiology;
  • Pathophysiology, degenerative conditions, injury;
  • Immunology;
  • Biomaterials;
  • Delivery of therapeutics, biologics;
  • Advanced microscopy techniques;
