posticon Symposia

The 5th FEBS-MPST 2015 Advanced Lecture Course include General Lectures / Tutorials (Glycobiology, Proteoglycans, Metalloproteinases, cell surface receptors, matrix) to be held during the first two days. Furthermore, six Plenary Symposia will each be introduced and moderated by leading scientists acting as discussion leaders. An introduction to the topic of each particular symposium will be given by the chairperson.

Symposium 1: Matrix Pathobiology (Chair: TBA)

Symposium 2: Interactions and Functions of Matrix Macromolecules (Chair: TBA)

Symposium 3: Glycobiology and Metabolic Regulation of ECM molecules (Chair: TBA)

Symposium 4: Cell receptors signaling and ECM based nanotechnology (Chair: TBA)

Symposium 5: Signaling and Disease Molecular Targeting (Chair: TBA)

Symposium 6: Matrix regulation in health and disease (Chair: TBA)


N. Karamanos, V. Hascall and R. Iozzo will deliver the final keynote address to conclude FEBS-MPST2013 meeting.

posticon Speakers' corner

An important goal of the FEBS-MPST courses is to bring together senior with young scientists on an important and rapidly developing scientific field. In that regard, two speakers’ corners will be organized during the FEBS-MPST 2015. The participants will have the chance to meet and counteract with the invited speakers, chairs attending the meeting as well as with members of the organizing committee face-to-face in an informal atmosphere besides the seaside.  The invited speakers will be able to pass through their experience and advices to the young researchers.

posticon Poster Sessions

The poster session represents a vital part of the FEBS-MPST meetings. All abstracts, whether or not selected for oral presentations, will be on display as posters during the entire course to provide ample time for informal discussions among students, participants and lecturers. Two poster sessions and poster discussion groups will be organized.

posticon Oral Presentations

Selected Talks will be delivered during afternoon or evening sessions by participants (seniors, post-docs and graduate students). These presentations will be selected by the Scientific Advisory Board on the basis of submitted abstracts.
