4th Annual Matrix Biology Ireland Meeting

The 4th Annual Matrix Biology Ireland (MBI) meeting will be hosted by Trinity College Dublin from 30th November-1st December 2017.  The theme of this year’s meeting is “Learning from Development to Engineering Therapeutics”, and the MBI Council and Local Organising Committee are delighted to announce the final line-up of national and international invited speakers:

  • George Bou-Gharios (University of Liverpool, UK) “Characterisation of matrix gene enhancers to target connective tissue diseases
  • John Baugh (University College Dublin)
  • John Couchman (University of Copenhagen, Denmark) “Syndecan receptors: gatekeepers of the cell adhesion phenotype
  • Garry Duffy (NUI, Galway) “Advanced materials for cardiac regeneration
  • Adam Engler (UC San Diego, USA) “Improving cardiovascular ‘Disease-in-a-dish’ with engineered niches
  • Karen English (NUI, Maynooth) “Mesenchymal stromal cell therapy in chronic inflammatory lung diseases
  • Peter Friedl (Radboud University Nijmegen, Netherlands) “Plasticity of cancer cell invasion in vivo: adhesion and tissue guidance
  • Caitriona Lally (Trinity College Dublin) “Non-destructive characterisation of arterial structure using high-resolution diffusion MRI
  • Tanya Levingstone (Dublin City University) “Directed osteogenesis and chondrogenesis in a multi-layered osteochondral scaffold
  • Charles D. Little (University of Kansas, USA) “ECM motion during early amniote embryogenesis – how much do embryonic cells really move?
  • Aideen Ryan (NUI, Galway) “Induced immunomodulatory functions of stromal cells in the inflammatory tumour microenvironment
  • Liliana Schaefer (Goethe University, Frankfurt, Germany) “Proteoglycan neofunctions: regulation of inflammation and beyond
  • Charles Streuli (University of Manchester, UK) “How cell-matrix interactions control circadian clocks in the breast

While the abstract submission deadline for oral presentations has now passed, the Local Organising Committee is accepting Late-Breaking Poster abstract submissions until 10th November 2017.

The Matrix Biology Ireland group hope to attract delegates interested in practical and translational applications of the biology of the extracellular matrix in all forms & aspects. Delegates can register their attendance at this year’s meeting on the MBI meeting website (http://www.mbi.ie/meeting-2017/registration).

Further information on the invited speakers, meeting programme, as well as sponsorship & exhibition opportunities can be found on the MBI website. [http://www.mbi.ie/meeting-2017/home]
