Welcome to the new website for the Danish Society for Matrix Biology!
We are excited to announce that our 2023 annual meeting will take place on October 30th and October 31st at Nielsine Nielsen Auditorium, Panum Institute, University of Copenhagen.
It is with great sadness that we learn the news of the sudden passing of our esteemed keynote speaker Ulrich auf dem Keller from DTU Department of Biotechnology and Biomedicine. His contributions to the matrix biology field and support for the DSMB were invaluable, and he will be greatly missed. In his memory, we are honoured to welcome Prof. Anthony Day (Wellcome Centre for Cell-Matrix Research and Lydia Becker Institute of Immunology and Inflammation, University of Manchester, UK) as our new keynote speaker. We extend our gratitude to him for stepping in, and we carry forward with a commitment to uphold the spirit of learning and inspiration that Ulrich brought to our community.
We also have three invited speakers, Neel Nissen (Nordic Bioscience, DK), Joan Chang (Wellcome Centre for Cell-Matrix Research, UK) and Michal Dudek (The University of Manchester, UK).
We encourage all DSMB members to join and submit an abstract. For early career researchers, there will be oral and poster prizes.
Find the preliminary program here.
Please submit your abstract here before 25/9
In connection with the annual meeting, we are also happy to announce the 2023 PhD course entitled "Matrix Biology - physiology and function of extracellular matrix" taking place on November 1st to November 3rd.
If you are a PhD student interested in this course, please register here before October 4th, 2023.
Few seats available!
The Danish Society for Matrix Biology (DSMB) is a network for advancing the science of connective tissue, extracellular matrix biology and related subjects. The DSMB arranges seminars, lectures, discussion groups, conferences, symposia, and related networking events for scientists in the field.
