Welcome to the congress site for the International Joint Meeting of the German and French Societies for Matrix biology entitled “Extracellular Matrix: New Perspectives for Translational Medicine”


This year the annual meetings of the German and French society are conducted as a joint meeting in Freiburg, a picturesque city in the heart of Europe located in the trijunction of France, Switzerland and Germany.

Our keynote speakers are of international standing and come from a wide range of disciplines, reflecting the interests of both societies. The science presented at the meeting addresses both clinical and basic scientists and brings together researchers, students and scientists from an academical, clinical, and industrial background.

This meeting will have a wide audience, from internationally established scientists to ambitious students, PhD candidates and postdocs. A substantial part of the program will be devoted to presentations especially by young scientists selected from the abstracts submitted. There will also be ample opportunity for informal discussions and networking. Poster prizes and a young investigator award session will be dedicated to your scientific contributions.
